Time is Running Out: Congress, Extend the ACP

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) has helped over 23 million American households get access to affordable internet. Without it, recipients like Carmen Lopez, a single mom in Boston, MA, will be forced to make difficult financial decisions, and more than a million veterans could lose reliable access to VA benefits, telehealth, and online job opportunities.

The ACP is expected to run out of funding in a matter of weeks, leaving millions of Americans in a lurch. Despite bipartisan support to extend funding for the ACP, Congress has yet to act. It is time policymakers answer the call and save the ACP to keep America connected. Watch the video below to learn why.
