Tell Congress: Protect affordable internet for millions!

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) helps nearly 23 million low-income households access high-speed broadband. It provides $30 per month to qualifying families for affordable internet access and up to $75 per month for households residing on tribal lands. 

Unfortunately, funding for the program will run out at the end of this month, and it will officially shut down in May unless Congress takes action and passes the Affordable Connectivity Program Extension Act. Will you urge your members of Congress to take action?
