Cricket Wireless will be tabling in our lobby Monday (5/22) at 11am to assist clients with limited income sign up for the Affordable Connectivity Program to potentially receive a free phone or lower the cost of cellphone services.
What is the Affordable Connectivity Program? The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal program that helps lower the monthly cost of broadband service for eligible households. Eligible households may get up to a $30 benefit on their eligible mobile broadband service. Eligible households who live on federally recognized Tribal Lands may get up to a $75 benefit on their eligible mobile broadband service. Only one benefit per household, not per person, is allowed, and the benefit may only be applied to one broadband service, regardless of service provider.
