There’s a new program to help eligible Connecticut residents who are struggling to afford high-speed internet access.

The Federal Communications Commission’s Affordable Connectivity Program provides eligible households with a discount of up to $30 per month for high-speed internet or a discount of up to $75 per month for eligible households on tribal lands.

The program also includes a onetime discount per household of up to $100 for one laptop, desktop computer or tablet purchased through a participating provider.

A household is eligible if total income is at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guideline ($27,180 for a single person or $55,500 for a family of four) or if a household member qualifies for certain assistance programs. To view the full details on eligibility, visit fcc.gov/acp, or apply at acpbenefit.org. You can also visit aarp.org/ACP, call 877-384-2575 or text INTERNET to 22777.
