Certain township residents may be able to get reduced internet
Certain township residents can receive reduced internet access through the new Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Administered by the Federal Communications Commission, the program provides eligible households up to $30/month off internet bills, as well as a one-time $100 discount off a connected device. Certain internet service providers will also offer high-speed plans that are fully covered by the ACP. To qualify for the program, residents must meet one of three conditions: have an income at or below 200% of federal poverty guidelines, participate or have someone in the household participate in a program such as Medicaid, Pell grant, supplemental nutrition assistance, among others, OR meet eligibility criteria for a participating broadband provider existing low-income internet program.
