Currently, As Many As 303,000 Nevadans Are Eligible To Apply For This Program, Which Senator Rosen Helped Secure In The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) applauded the news that more than 144,000 people in Nevada have enrolled in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), and she is encouraging the 303,000 additional eligible Nevadans to apply for this important program. ACP is a key component of the broadband section of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which Senator Rosen helped write and pass, that helps Americans afford access to high-speed internet.
“At a time when hardworking families are facing rising costs, I’m urging the more than 300,000 Nevadans who are eligible to apply for the Affordable Connectivity Program and get help paying for their monthly internet bill,” said Senator Rosen.
Senator Rosen has been a strong fighter for expanding broadband access in Nevada. She helped write the broadband section of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which was signed into law last year and is delivering $65 billion in overall investment to make broadband available and affordable to Americans. Through ACP, Americans are able to receive a discount of up to $30 per month off their internet bills or $75 per month for households living on Tribal lands, as well as a one-time $100 discount to purchase a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer.
