Home Internet Assistance
FPS Students and Families,
Beginning in January 2022, the federal government started a new program called the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Families can receive up to a $30 per month discount on Internet services. Please go to https://acpbenefit.org/ to learn more about this program and apply.
If an ACP application was denied or the monthly costs would still be too high even with the ACP discounts, families should check in with their school's main office to see if any additional options exist.
(The federal government set aside funding through the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program to help Internet Service Providers offer broadband service at a significant discount to families needing access at the beginning of this school year. This program provided free Internet service for families that applied for the benefit before December 31, 2021 and were approved. Families who applied for EBB and approved already have internet at home and do not need to apply for the ACP.)
