Lower-income residents (below 200% of federal poverty level) or who are receiving public benefits such as free school lunch, WIC/SNAP, Pell grants, subsidized housing, and Medicaid. Lifeline users also qualify.

Getting the ACP benefit requires one or two steps: (1) confirming eligibility and (2) signing up with the internet provider to apply for the subsidy.

Some internet providers with a low-income program allow direct ACP sign-up; others will require the federal ACP eligibility sign-up first.
