The Affordable Connectivity Program helps qualifying households save up to $30 monthly on Internet service. Over 70,400 households in North Carolina's Sixth District are saving money each month on their Internet bills through this critical program. 

However, if Congress does not reauthorize funding for the program in the FY2024 budget, which must be passed before February 2nd, then funding for the program will expire by mid-2024. 

Please take a brief survey to share your thoughts on the Affordable Connectivity Program with Congresswoman Kathy Manning.
