Home Internet Access is Important for Every Student's Success 

The Affordable Connectivity Program provides eligible households with up to a $30 discount o their monthly internet bill or a $75/month discount on Tribal lands. It also provides a one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet purchased through a participating provider when the eligible household contributes at least $10 but less than $50 toward the purchase. 

You may qualify if your student receives free or reduced school lunch or breakfast! 

Does your student participate in the Free and Reduced-Price School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision? 

If the answer is Yes, your household is eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program. 

You may also qualify if the household income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or if a member of the household participates in certain federal assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, SSI or WIC, or Tribal assistance programs. 

Lifeline program participants also automatically qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program.
