The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) provides eligible households with a discount on broadband service and connected devices.


On November 15, 2021, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (Infrastructure Act) became law. The Infrastructure Act provided $14.2 billion to modify and extend the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program) to a longer-term broadband affordability program called the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The Infrastructure Act directed the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) to undertake a proceeding to adopt final rules for the ACP. On November 18, 2021, the Commission’s Wireline Competition Bureau issued a Public Notice seeking comment on the rules and administration of the ACP.


The Infrastructure Act also directed the Commission to effectuate specified changes for the ACP, such as to program eligibility criteria and the program benefit amount, by the effective date, which the Bureau determined to be December 31, 2021. The ACP also began to accept enrollments on December 31, 2021 and the Commission adopted final rules for the ACP on January 14, 2022.


The Infrastructure Act also expressly authorized the Commission to conduct outreach for the ACP, including providing grants to outreach partners. On August 5, 2022, the Commission adopted rules establishing the Affordable Connectivity Outreach Grant Program and the Your Home, Your Internet Pilot Program, which is designed to increase awareness of the ACP, specifically among recipients of federal housing assistance.


On November 21, 2022, the Commission opened the application window for both the Your Home, Your Internet Program and the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) Navigator Pilot Program (collectively, the Affordable Connectivity Pilot Programs). The Affordable Connectivity Pilot Programs are meant to increase awareness of and facilitate enrollment in the ACP.
