Affordable Connectivity Program information: Do you qualify for money toward your internet bill?

Aug. 17, 2022

Cambridge CSD is working to help build awareness about the Affordable Connectivity Program, a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program. The program provides eligible households up to $30/month toward their internet bill, as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer or tablet. 

All households with a child who was approved to receive free or reduced-price school meals under the National School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program within the last 12 months, including children who attend schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision, are eligible for ACP benefits. 

Households are also independently eligible if:

  • their income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level ($55,500 for a family of four); or
  • a member of the household participates in certain other Federal benefit programs—including, among others, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and Federal Public Housing Assistance.

Families can check their eligibility, sign up and find fully-covered plans online or by calling 877-384-2575.
