Affordable Connectivity Program Pays for Internet Services for Public Housing and Section 8 Residents

Date Published:

This week, the Biden administration announced a $14.2B investment in a new federal subsidy program to help assisted households pay for internet services. Accepted by most Internet Service Providers (ISP), the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) gives public housing and Section 8 residents $30 a month to cover the cost of internet service. Additionally, eligible households who register with participating ISPs may receive a one-time subsidy of $100 for computer devices. HUD recently shared that even though public housing and Section 8 residents are income qualified to participate in the program, they are currently under-enrolled.

CLPHA encourages its members to share information and resources about this vital program with your residents to help bridge the digital divide. To learn more about the program, check out HUD’s Guide to ACP that includes an overview of the program, tips and best practices and promotional materials in a variety of languages.
