Register for the FCC Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

NOTICE: Due to a lack of continued federal funding for the program, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is winding down the ACP. West Virginia households have until February 7, 2024 to apply for the ACP, after which the FCC will no longer accept applications. It is currently estimated that the last month of the program will be April 2024, meaning that enrolled households will receive their last $30 discount on their internet bill for service in April. The FCC will announce the final month of ACP benefits by the end of March 2024.

Internet service providers should begin notifying customers about the end of the program on January 25, 2024. The Office of Broadband encourages West Virginians currently enrolled in the ACP to contact their internet service provider to confirm they want to continue or discontinue their service after the end of the program.

On December 31, 2021 the FCC launched the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). This program was created by Congress in the Infrastructure and Jobs Act, and replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit program. This investment in broadband affordability will help ensure households can afford the internet connections they need for work, school, health care and more.

The ACP provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.

Enrollment in the ACP is now open for households with at least one member qualifying under any of the following criteria:

  • Has an income that is at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines;
  • Participates in certain assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance, SSI, WIC, or Lifeline;
  • Participates in Tribal specific programs, such as Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance, Tribal TANF, or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations;
  • Is approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision;
  • Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year; or
  • Meets the eligibility criteria for a participating provider's existing low-income program.
