For Students & Families

FCC Affordable Connectivity Program Enrollment Support

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), administered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), provides eligible low-income households with a $30 monthly credit for broadband internet service. The Georgia Department of Education’s (GaDOE) Georgia Student Connect program is partnering with participating school districts across the state to help eligible families enroll.

Households that participate in the Free and Reduced-Price School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, and/or the USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) automatically qualify for the ACP subsidy so if any member of your family participates in one of these, please contact your district so they can supply you with the documents and support needed to apply for this benefit.

Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF)

ECF is a temporary $7.17 billion program that will help schools close the digital divide by providing funding for devices and broadband connectivity purchases for off-campus use by students and school staff in need. More information on the ECF can be found at the FCC website. Georgia Student Connect has also developed an ECF Guidebook to help districts navigate the program. You can also access the guidebook. Your ambassador is available to field your questions.

The EBB provides a temporary discount of up to $50 per month towards broadband service for eligible households. The EBB is limited to one discounted monthly service plan per household and will continue until funds are expended or until six months after the declared end to the COVID-19 health emergency. Students in your district may be eligible for this program. Information about the program is available for students and their households at
