Do you need help paying for the Internet?

How does it work

Eligible households can receive up to $30 per month in assistance (up to $75 per month for households on tribal lands), to help pay for Internet service. Additionally, eligible households can receive a one-time $100 benefit to purchase devices such as laptops and tablets.

Note: This program was previously called the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB). On January 1, 2022, Congress renamed it the "Affordable Connectivity Program" and made it a permanent program. Congress also reduced the benefit amount from $50 per month to $30 per month and changed the eligibility requirements. If you received the EBB, make sure your Internet provider continues to offer you the ACP and see if the changes affect the amount of your bill.

Am I eligible?

A household may be eligible in several ways: Does a student in your household receive free or reduced-price school lunches or breakfasts? Do you use Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid, Lifeline or other assistance programs? Are you a federal Pell Grant recipient? Are you having trouble paying for Internet service? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, you may be eligible! Learn more about this benefit and its requirements.
