If you take just a second to think about it, it’s astonishing how much the internet has revolutionized our lives. Doctors are a video call away, we work with colleagues across the country in real time, and we’ve got whole libraries full of information at our fingertips. Yet for many of the families, internet access remains just out of reach. With the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) we can make major strides in closing the digital divide and expanding broadband access for HUD-assisted families including yours.
ACP offers your household up to $30/month discount for broadband service and a one-time discount of up to $100 for a computer or tablet (through participating Internet Service Providers). As a resident, you automatically qualify for ACP and the subsidy is not considered income for the purpose of determining program eligibility or household rent.
HUD’s nonprofit partner, Education Super-Highway (ESH) is making it even easier to share the ACP resources with these specially developed tools:
- ACP pre-enrollment tool, which walks residents through the process and shows residents the documentation they’ll need to have ready to demonstrate eligibility.
- Resident enrollment tool for staff.
- Outreach materials in nine languages.
The FCC’s ACP Outreach Toolkit is another great resource.
