PHA Residents & Voucher Participants,

Did you know you automatically qualify for a $30 monthly discount on your home or mobile internet service through the Federal Communications Commission’s Affordable Connectivity Program? The Portland Housing Authority is encouraging all Public Housing and Voucher Program recipients to claim this new benefit and start saving on your internet service.

You are also eligible for a one-time discount of $100 for a laptop, desktop, or tablet purchased through a participating provider if you pay a $10 to $50 co-pay.

To apply visit AffordableConnectivity.gov or call 1-877-384-2575 to request an application. Once you complete the application you can contact a participating internet service provider to start receiving your monthly discount.

Cost shouldn’t be a barrier to getting online. Being connected can help you find job opportunities and access telehealth services, saving you time and transportation costs. And with affordable internet services, students no longer need to rely on public Wi-Fi hotspots to do their homework or for distance learning.

There are additional ways to qualify. Go to fcc.gov/acp to learn more and apply. If you have questions, you’ll find a consumer FAQ that can help, along with a list of participating internet service providers sorted by state.

If you require any assistance with the information above please reach out to your Housing Officer.

Claim your new benefit and get connected today.

Thank you,
Portland Housing Authority
