Affordable Connectivity Program Grant Secured
March 29, 2023
Opportunity Home is the sole San Antonio recipient of a $125,000 Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) Grant by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to promote awareness and participation in the program.
Increasing awareness and participation in the FCC’s program helps narrow the digital divide, connecting residents from underserved communities to broadband access and devices at alternative rates. Those who qualify receive a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service and a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, computer, desktop or tablet from participating providers.
“Narrowing the digital divide in San Antonio is important to the city’s overall well-being,” said Jessica Strom, Opportunity Home Digital Inclusion Manager. “Residents having access to internet service and devices at an affordable cost opens up a world of opportunities.”
Creating a digitally inclusive ecosystem gives individuals access to thrive in the workforce, seek their educational endeavors, visit with physicians virtually and more.
