Low-Cost Internet Available Through the Affordable Connectivity Program

Attention, IDEA families! We know reliable home internet is essential to extend the learning day, help students complete their homework, and boost the home-to-school connection.  

If you are in need of reliable internet access, we want to make you aware of the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The Affordable Connectivity Program is a program that helps households struggling to afford internet service during the pandemic and enables students to:   

  • Communicate with teachers   
  • Access and complete assignments at home   
  • Engage in individualized learning through provided applications   


About the Affordable Connectivity Program   

If your household is eligible, you can receive:  

  • Up to a $30/month discount on your internet service  
  • Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands  
  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.  

The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household. To receive the connected device discount, consumers need to enroll in the ACP with a participating provider that offers connected devices . (Note: not all internet providers offer device discounts.) The internet provider will provide the discount to the consumer.
