In this post, we will discuss the Lifeline and Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) benefits at AirTalk Wireless and walk you through this helpful step-by-step guide on how to apply for the Lifeline and ACP program.
What is the Lifeline and ACP Program?
Operated by the FCC and funded by the U.S. government, the Lifeline and ACP programs were initiated to provide low-income households with discounts on monthly internet and broadband services.
- Lifeline: The Lifeline Program is a government assistance program that provides qualified low-income consumers with discounted phone service. The program’s goal is to ensure that all Americans have affordable access to communication services, which are necessary for employment, education, and other aspects of daily life.
- Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP): ACP is a government program that offers low-income households discounted internet service. The program aims to bridge the digital divide and ensure that all Americans have access to affordable broadband internet service.
