Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?

The Affordable Connectivity Program, or ACP, is a federal government program that provides a discount on mobile phone service to help decrease your monthly bill. Get a credit of up to $30 per month if you qualify.

Who is eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program?

New and existing Twigby customers can participate! You can qualify if you or a member of your household:

  • Receives SNAP/food stamps, Medicaid, or is eligible to participate in another one of the FCC’s Lifeline qualifying programs;
  • Receives the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) benefit;
  • Receives free or reduced-price school lunch or breakfast through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP);
  • Enrolled in a school that offers free school breakfast and lunch to all students through its participation in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP);
  • Most New York City public schools qualify!
  • Received a Federal Pell Grant in the current award year; or,
  • If your gross annual household income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (see the 2022 income ceilings per household size for the 48 contiguous states)

Please note each eligible household can only receive one Affordable Connectivity Program benefit and your Twigby plan must include data to receive the ACP discount.
