If you’re an L.A. County resident struggling with household expenses, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) can help with the high cost of home internet. Launched in early 2022, the program offers eligible households up to a $30 discount on their monthly internet bill ($75 for households on qualifying Tribal lands). ACP households are also eligible for a one-time $100 discount when buying a laptop or tablet from participating providers. With ACP, your home internet service can be free.
The ACP eligibility and application process has been streamlined to make it easy for qualified households to start saving on their internet bill as soon as possible. To qualify for ACP, at least one household member must be enrolled in one of the following government assistance programs: Lifeline, Free or Reduced School Lunch Program, CalFresh or SNAP, Medi-Cal or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Pell Grant or WIC (Women, Infants & Children). Households may also qualify if they have a household income of $53,000 or less for a family of 4 (add $9,000 per additional family member).
