What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?
Point Broadband is proud to participate in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). You may be eligible for up to $30/month toward your Internet service. Congress recently created the Affordable Connectivity Program, a new long-term, $14 billion program, which will replace the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program. This investment in broadband affordability will help ensure we can afford the connections we need for work, school, health care and more for a long time.

How It Works

Qualifying households receive a $30 monthly credit to help pay for Internet service. This benefit will provide millions of Americans with access to critical services like telemedicine, education, employment, social services, banking, email, shopping, news, emergency information, and so much more.
The program is available in every US state and territory and tens of millions of Americans qualify. If even one person in a household receives, qualifies for, or participates in any of the below-listed programs, that entire household is eligible for the ACP program.
