Biden Administration Asks Congress for $6 Billion to Continue ACP

The Biden administration asked Congress on Wednesday for $6 billion to extend the Affordable Connectivity Program through December 2024. The program was set up with a $14 billion allotment from the 2021 Infrastructure, Investment and Jobs Act. It provides a monthly internet discount of $30 for low-income households and $75 for residents of Tribal lands, more than 20 million households in total. Participants can also get a one-time $100 device subsidy.
