• Affordable Connectivity Program


    The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a U.S. government program that helps many low-income households pay for broadband service and internet-connected devices. All CMSD families are eligible to participate.


    Here’s how the program works:

    • The benefit provides a $30/month discount toward high-speed connectivity
    • You will need to apply online through the federal government website/self-service portal for the program
    • Once the application is approved, you will see a credit on your high-speed internet bill of $30 toward your total bill.
    • CMSD is also partnering with the Ohio Connectivity Champions to help provide technical support and answer your questions.

    How to apply for the benefit

    3. Some providers may have an alternative application that they will ask you to complete.
    4. Eligible households must both apply for the program and contact a participating provider to select a service plan.
