What is the ACP, FCC, and USAC?

The Federal Government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a long-term $14 billion program that helps low-income households that qualify based on Federal Government rules pay for Internet service. It helps ensure Americans can afford the connections they need for work, school, health care, and more.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) operates both the ACP, establishing the rules and requirements for participating providers and consumers. The FCC contracts a third-party provider, the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), to perform the day-to-day operations of the ACP.

The Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) is a third-party company that the FCC contracts to perform the day-to-day operations of the ACP which rely on systems that were built to administer the Lifeline program and now accommodate the administration of the ACP. USAC maintains: (i) National Verifier, which determines the eligibility of consumers to participate in the programs; (ii) the National Lifeline Accountability Database, which mitigates against fraud, waste, abuse in the programs; and (iii) the Lifeline Claims System, which ensures that service providers only receive reimbursement for passing benefits through to qualified consumers.

The National Verifier is an electronic and manual system with associated functions, processes, policies, and procedures. It is used to facilitate the determination of consumer eligibility for the ACP.

No, they aren’t. Lifeline is a Federal Universal Service Fund program reducing the cost of telecommunications and/or Internet service for qualifying low-income consumers, while the ACP reduces Internet service costs for qualifying households. But, consumers who qualify for Lifeline automatically qualify to participate in the ACP.

The ACP Household Worksheet is used for consumers reporting an address that is already on record as participating in the program to determine if they are considered the same or separate households based on the FCC’s definition. For example, two people living at the same residence who share money and bills are considered one household under the FCC’s definition. In that case, only one ACP benefit is available for that address. Conversely, two people living at the same residence who do not share any income or expenses may be considered two separate households. In that case, both individuals may qualify to receive both an ACP benefit.
