Wolf encourages enrollment in Affordable Connectivity Program
Gov. Tom Wolf is reminding low-income Pennsylvanians to enroll in the Affordable Connectivity Program to help reduce the cost of internet.
The program is administered through the Federal Communication Commission and local internet providers, expanding broadband access and helping families save money.
The program provides qualifying low-income families with a discount of up to $30 per month on internet bills and a one-time $100 discount on a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from certain providers.
To qualify, a household can either have income at or below 200% of federal poverty guidelines, participate in a federal assistance program, meet criteria in the participating providers low-income program or have received a Pell grant in the calendar year.
Interested participants should apply at affordableconnectivity.gov, then contact a participating internet provider to select a plan and have the discount applied.
