    How low-income families can apply for $30 off their internet bill each month

    May 10, 2022

    Those who live on tribal lands can get up to $75 a month.
    get a one-time $100 discount to buy a laptop, desktop or tablet.
    Many families in low-income households in the United States are now eligible to get a $30 per month discount on their internet bills, which could end up being free broadband in some cases.

    The money for benefit, called the Affordable Connectivity Program, comes from a bipartisan infrastructure law announced by President Joe Biden on Monday.

    The White House says that 20 major internet providers have agreed to offer program-eligible households high-speed internet plans for no more than $30, which means the monthly plans would be free for those families. The plans offer a minimum of 100Mbps download speed "which is fast enough for a typical family of 4 to video conference, stream movies or TV, and more," according to the government.

    The White House says the program will increase access to high-speed internet for 48 million households nationwide.

    How do I know if I qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program?
    There are three ways to qualify.

    1. One way is if your household income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty line. The getinternet.gov website has a tool that can tell you if you make too much to qualify.

    2. You can also be eligible for the program if you or someone in your household participates in government assistance programs like SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, SSI, FPHA, a veterans pension and survivors benefit, free and reduced-price school lunch or school breakfast, a federal pell grant, or tribal assistance. (Those who live on tribal lands can get up to $75 a month.)

    3. Someone in the household meets eligibility for a participating broadband provider’s existing low-income internet program.

    How do I sign up for ACR?
    Visit getinternet.gov to sign up online. You can also send in an application by mail or after contacting your existing internet service provider if the company is a participant in the program. You can also call 877-384-2575 for more information.

    How do I know if my internet company is participating?
    Here is a list of internet providers participating in the program. They include AT&T, Comcast, Verizon and more.

    Is there help for those who don’t have a tablet or computer?
    Yes. Program-eligible households can get a one-time $100 discount to buy a laptop, desktop or tablet. Here is the list of providers.
