Save the Affordable Connectivity Program
Internet access for 22.5 million families could be at risk if Congress doesn't act.
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is the only federal program that helps lower-income families afford high-speed internet and devices. Over one in six Americans rely on the ACP to get online and stay online.
Unfortunately, the ACP is on track to run out of funding later this year. If Congress allows this to happen, families across the country will have to pay more for internet service—and potentially lose connectivity altogether.
That's why we are calling for additional ACP funding immediately. Not only would this funding allow the ACP to continue helping the millions of families who rely on it, it would also give policymakers time to come up with a plan to fund the program permanently.
The ACP Is Successful
The ACP is helping families everywhere, no matter where they live or how they vote.
The ACP's Benefits Extend Beyond Connectivity
The ACP improves education, health care, income, and broadband infrastructure.
The ACP Has Broad Support
Everyone supports the ACP, including the White House, FCC, NTIA, Democrats, Republicans, industry, and advocates.
