Important Update

Transition to ACP,  "The Affordable Connectivity Program is administered"


We are excited to announce that as of September 1, 2022, the Wilkinsburg Digital Inclusion Project is transitioning to promoting and assisting qualifying families apply for the ACP. This ACP assistance will be available until March 2023.


What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a U.S. government program run by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices like a laptop or tablet.

You are likely eligible if your household’s income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line, or if you or someone you live with currently receives a government benefit like SNAP, Medicaid, SSI, WIC, Pell Grant, or Free and Reduced-Price Lunch.

If your household is eligible, you could receive:

  • Up to a $30/month discount on your internet service
  • Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)
  • A low cost service plan that may be fully covered through the ACP*

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.

Outreach at the Wilkinsburg Family Support Center

Wilkinsburg Family Support Center Family support is a family-focused approach to human service delivery.  It is community based and there are no eligibility requirements for participation.  As opposed to identifying and fixing what is wrong, family support focuses on identifying and building upon family strengths.

Outreach at Wellness for Wilkinsburg

This was event hosted by Royally Fit, which provides health and wellness resources to neighborhoods that disproportionately lack access to these resources. It was great opportunity to meet our Wilkinsburg families right where they live.
