New program connects low income Kansas families online
The Affordable Connectivity Program (“ACP”) is a new, long-term Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that is replacing the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB program) effective January 1, 2022.
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 (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)
Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed 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 company offer device discounts.) The internet company will provide the discount to the consumer.
