You have heard people talking about getting free government internet! You probably thought that sounds great, but did you know that you don't have to be getting government aid to qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Plan?
Thanks to the Affordable Connectivity Program, or ACP, getting free internet in Nevada is now possible for many! This new benefit was made to help regular Americans, just like you!
Almost half of all American households can qualify for the ACP.
When you qualify for ACP with EASY Wireless, you can get free unlimited data along with free talk and text! This benefit is for working people on a low income or with large households as well as for people on certain government assistance benefits.
We will explain how you can qualify for the ACP by income amount to start saving money today.
What is the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?
The ACP stands for the Affordable Connectivity Program, a recently funded federal aid to help American households stay competitive by having equal access to the internet.
Many Americans are struggling to make ends meet; unfortunately, internet data is one of the first things to go. The government realized that this keeps people from finding work or even getting an education. That is why this program allows you to benefit even if you are working and are not getting food stamps or other government aid.
For example, a single person working a full-time job in Nevada at minimum wage would bring home about $21,294 a year. This would put them under the allowed amount of 27,180 a year for a household of one.
The more dependents you have, the more you can make and still qualify. Check the chart and see if you can qualify by income level.
Which households would be eligible?
Under Federal rules, only one ACP benefit is allowed per household. In this case, a household would be any group of people who live together under the same roof and share money and expenses, even if they are unrelated.
A single household is:
- A married couple living together
- A parent/guardian and a dependent child who live together
- An adult living with friends or relatives who provide financial support
- A boyfriend and girlfriend who live together and share a bank account.
- Unmarried couple living at the same address and sharing a child
In these cases, they would be considered part of the same household, receiving the same benefit.
Multiple Household Case
Four roommates who live together and share the rent, but do not share bank accounts and income, are four separate households. All four can receive the ACP.
Thirty older people who live in an assisted living facility but do not share money are 30 separate households. All 30 can receive the ACP.
