The Affordable Connectivity Program, a federal program of the United States Federal Communications Commission, will run out of funding in the spring of this year unless Congress takes immediate action to extend funding for the program.

This means you and all ACP enrolled households will lose your Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) benefits.

And in this day and age, no one can afford to go without high speed internet.

The time is NOW to save the ACP

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) has helped more than 22 million eligible households, many of whom reside on tribal lands, with a discount on internet access and high speed internet service.

Don't wait

This program is crucial for connecting lower income families and communities and alleviating the burden of costs on families struggling to choose between broadband services and other expenses. Without it, the digital divide in this country will grow larger than ever.

However, funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program will run out -- SOON -- in the spring of this year if action is not taken to re-fund the program. Please contact your representative to insist this vital internet service be funded.
