FCC Affordable Connectivty Program
What is happening to the Affordable Connectivity Program?
Without additional funding from Congress, the allotted $14.2 billion to fund the ACP is projected to run out in April 2024 (this date is an estimate an may change). As a result, the FCC has begun taking steps to wind down the ACP, which means:
- ACP applications and enrollments will not be processed after February 7, 2024, at 11:59 PM ET.
- Households who have applied, been approved, and are receiving the monthly internet discount before February 9, 2024, will continue to receive the ACP benefit until ACP funds run out, as long as the household remains enrolled in the program.
- After the ACP funds run out (projected in April 2024), households participating in the ACP will no longer receive the ACP discounts.
