Narrowing the Digital Divide

“Your Home, Your Internet” program by the Federal Communications Commission

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Geoffrey Starks’ Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), “Your Home, Your Internet” pilot program is kicking off in Denver! This program is focused on increasing awareness and the enrollment of ACP for households who receive federal housing assistance.

The event in Denver on August 17 – hosted and led by Denver Housing Authority with collaboration from Mercy Housing, HOST and Rocky Mountain Communities – will be the kick-off of the program. Several internet providers including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Comcast, STARRY and others will be on-site at Denver Housing Authority’s A.B. Hirschfeld Towers helping people who are interested in free internet access apply for the program.

Through the pilot program, households that receive federal housing assistance are eligible to receive the ACP discount of up to $30 per month for internet service and a one-time discount of $100 to purchase a computer or tablet from their provider. Many broadband providers have committed to offer a broadband tier for those eligible at or below the cost of the subsidy.

See you on Wednesday, August 17 at 11am!
