Part of the Beaver County Broadband Program is to help residents with the cost of Internet.
Read more below to find out more about the different programs and how easy it is to find out if you are eligible to pay less for your Internet.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to help ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare, and more.
The ACP offers eligible households $30 toward their monthly Internet bill and up to $100 on the purchase of a computer or Internet-enabled device. This is an income-based program, so residents qualify if their annual income is less than 200% of the poverty level or if they participate in another eligible assistance program.
