We know that access to a reliable internet connection is important to our students and families. We wanted to make you aware of the Affordable Connectivity Program which provides eligible households with up to a $30 discount off their monthly internet bill. It also offers a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer or tablet from participating providers. The program is offered through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to help qualifying families of Pre-K to adult students. Families who qualify for free or reduced lunch as well as those who participate in certain federal assistance programs such as SNAP or WIC are eligible to apply.
There are two steps to enroll.
- Go to AffordableConnectivity.gov to submit an application or print a mail-in application.
- Contact your preferred participating provider to select an eligible plan and have the discount applied to your bill.
