Additional Educational Content


The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) gives a discount on your household's monthly broadband internet service, if you are eligible. Participating broadband providers will apply this discount to your broadband plan.

If eligible, your household can receive:

  • Up to a $30/month discount on your internet service
  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (you will need to pay a copay between $10 and $50)
  • Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household

Your household may be eligible if someone in the household falls under just one of these criteria:

  • If a household income is 200% or less than the federal poverty guideline (ex: at or less than $35,775 for a household of 4)
  • If you or your child or dependent participate in certain government assistance programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, or other programs
  • If you or your child or dependent already receives a Lifeline benefit
  • If a child in your household attend an NYC public school that participates in the free or reduced lunch program (all NYC public schools do!)
  • Note: You do not need to be a U.S. citizen to be eligible. If you do not have a Social Security Number (SSN), you can provide other documents.
  • Note: Additionally, customers are not required to submit to a credit check.

How to Apply

  1. Go to GetInternet.Gov to submit an application or print out a mail-in application.
  2. Contact your preferred participating provider to select an eligible plan and have the discount applied to your bill.
    1. Note: enrollment is not complete until the provider confirms your plan.

Some providers may have an alternative application they will ask you to complete. Eligible households must both apply for the program and contact a participating provider to select a service plan.
