Federal subsidies for internet service

The Affordable Connectivity Program Application is now closed. As of February 7, 2024, the ACP stopped accepting new applications. The FCC anticipates existing ACP funding to run out in April 2024 if Congress does not provide additional funding. Consumers that are enrolled in the ACP will continue to receive their benefit on their internet service through April 2024. This date is an estimate and may change.

For help with the ACP wind-down or to find out about other affordable internet service, please contact SHA’s Digital Navigation team by calling 206.615.3580 or emailing
