The Affordable Connectivity Program and Equiva ACP Connect

Seamlessly bridge at-risk individuals to care

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a $14.2 billion FCC benefit program designed to help ensure households can afford the broadband and devices they need for healthcare and more.

Equiva partners with healthcare organizations to leverage the ACP. Together, we can help ensure at-risk, under-connected individuals have access to the information, resources and care solutions they need to manage their health more effectively.

We are pleased to provide our Equiva ACP Connect Program to support health systems, hospitals, skilled care facilities, senior living environments, insurers, government agencies and non-profits in their efforts to reduce the digital divide and advance health equity.

While a White House press release indicates that 48 million households – nearly 40% of U.S. households – are eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program, according to the FCC only 14.7 million households have subscribed as of early November.
