FCC to Host Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) Wind-Down Webinar

Date Published: 
March 6th, 2024

From the Federal Communications Commission (FCC):

On March 4, 2024, the FCC issued a Public Notice confirming that absent additional funding from Congress, April 2024 is the last fully funded month for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).  April will be the final month that households receiving the benefit will see it applied to their monthly internet bill and without renewed funding from Congress, the ACP will only be able to provide a partial reimbursement for May 2024. ACP service providers are required to send notices about the program’s end no later than 15 days after the release of the March 4, 2024 Public Notice.

As part of its continued consumer education, the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (CGB) will host a webinar on March 13, 2024, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The briefing will be streamed live on www.fcc.gov/live and recorded and archived for public viewing available at fcc.gov/acp.

The ACP 60-day notice webinar will be webcast with open captioning and sign language interpreting at www.fcc.gov/live. Other reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities are available upon request. Include a description of the accommodation you will need and tell us how to contact you if we need more information. Make your request as early as possible. Last minute requests will be accepted but may be impossible to fill. Send an e-mail to FCC504@fcc.gov or call the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau at 202-418-0530 (voice).

Registration is not required for this public event. For more information about the ACP Wind-Down, visit www.fcc.gov/acp.  The Order released on January 11, 2024, providing requirements and guidance for the ACP Wind-Down is available here.
