On January 11, 2024, due to a lack of additional funding from Congress, the FCC released an Order announcing steps to wind down the Affordable Connectivity Program. This program provided monthly subsidies to low-income households for internet services. Many of you have enrolled in the ACP and are receiving low to no-cost internet thanks to the subsidy. Currently, we are working with Utah internet providers to find out next steps. We will be updating you, and your property managers as more information comes in.

At this point, the ACP funds run only through the end of April. Be on the lookout for notices from your Internet providers. We do know that Comcast Internet Essentials, will continue to be $9.95 a month, and for those with greater bandwidth needs, Internet Essentials Plus for $29 per month, in addition, they offer WiFi hotspots through WiFi Pass, for $10 for 30 days. As residents of UNPHC properties, you are eligible. The Comcast Lift Zones (which operate at a number of our properties) will continue to provide free access.

We are waiting for information from other providers and will keep you posted here, on our Facebook page and website, as well as offering information to your property managers as soon as we have more details.

The good news is that despite this setback, our partners in bridging the digital divide, such as The Utah Broadband Center, Connecting Utah, The State of Utah, Comcast, Google Fiber, Mobile Beacon, and others are committed to maintaining affordable internet for ALL!

Stay tuned and stay connected!

We wish you good health and much happiness.
