The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) now has 10M Households Enrolled
February 16, 2022
Earlier this week, the White House
and FCC announced that over 10 million households are now enrolled in the Affordable Connectivity Program. With your partnership we have helped over 10M households gain access to discounted broadband services through the nation's largest ever broadband affordability program
. The ACP provides connections for telehealth services, distance learning, economic development, government benefits and services, and civic engagement with local, state, and national elected and appointed leaders. As we celebrate this milestone, we are also looking ahead. The FCC will continue its work to ensure that qualifying households know how to enroll. We invite you to join us in that mission. Below you will find 10 ways to connect your community with the ACP.
