The Internet is essential for participation in today’s world.  School, work, starting a business, accessing government services, job seeking, paying bills, and even medical care are going online.

If you are having trouble affording Internet for essential needs, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) may be able to help.  The ACP is a federal government benefit program operated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
