Digital Literacy Volunteer In-Service: The Affordable Connectivity Program
October 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), funded through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act passed in November 2021 is a long-term extension of the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program started by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) during the Covid-19 pandemic. The ACP provides eligible households with a monthly discount on internet service, and a one-time discount for a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet purchased through a participating provider. During this 45-minute presentation, Lydia Torres, Literacy CNY’s Digital Literacy Program Coordinator, will be reviewing the discounts provided through the program, how to help customers apply for the program, and how to help customers locate participating providers local to them.
