Important Program Update

Without additional funding from Congress, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is projected to run out of funds after April. As a result, the FCC is taking steps to wind down the program, which means ACP applications and enrollments will not be processed after Feb. 7, 2024 at 11:59 PM ET.

After ACP funding runs out, participating households will no longer receive ACP discounts.

Next Steps

  • Households enrolled in ACP will receive notices from their internet provider regarding the program’s conclusion. The notices will include the following details:
    • The impact the program's conclusion will have on their bill.
    • The date they will receive the last bill that includes the ACP benefit. 
    • A note that customers may change their service or opt out of continuing service after ACP ends.
  • ACP participants and advocates for digital inclusion may call the ACP Action Hotline at (800) 397-2937 to urge their Senator to continue funding the program. Visit our advocacy page to send a message to Congress.
