Governors in 29 states have already made Affordable Connectivity Program adoption a priority.



Kay Ivey


Broadband accessibility continues to be one of the most critical issues facing our state and directly impacts Alabama’s economic development efforts, educational outcomes, and so much more. At the state level, we’ve been able to strategically deploy our limited resources and expand access in numerous rural communities, but many Alabamians still lack reliable access to high-speed broadband or are struggling to cover the cost. The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a great resource for Alabamians to get help paying for internet and devices and will go a long way helping our state eliminate coverage gaps. If Alabama is going to continue upon its unprecedented upward trajectory, we have to build awareness and work together to close the digital divide.

Stable, high-speed internet connection is important for all Delaware families, students, and businesses. The Affordable Connectivity Program is an important step to giving Delawareans across the state access to connect to school, work, health care, and more.

Programs like the ACP are building the momentum to bring us all into the 21st century.

Improved internet access propels our economy forward, makes education and healthcare more accessible, and greatly improves Idahoans’ quality of life.

When I took office, we quickly set to work delivering the reliable and affordable broadband every community needs to compete in the modern economy. Thanks to a historic $360 million investment we made in 2020, an estimated 115,000 homes, schools, and businesses now enjoy access to this essential precondition for prosperity. By bridging Iowa’s digital divide, we’ve laid the groundwork for a flurry of investment, opportunity, and innovation in our rural communities and across the state.


Laura Kelly


Access to high-speed internet in today’s economy isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity. The Affordable Connectivity Program breaks down barriers to tools that can change outcomes for rural and urban regions alike – something that’s essential as Kansas continues to work toward being a top 10 state for broadband access by 2030.



Andy Beshear


High-speed, reliable internet service is not just the infrastructure of the future, it is the infrastructure of the present. It is essential to the success of our state’s economy and to future job creation. It is as vital to connectivity as roads and bridges are. As we strive to build a better Kentucky, the Affordable Connectivity Program is another great option that helps our people get online, where they can access new opportunities, see a doctor through a tele-health visit, connect with loved ones and so much more.


John Bel Edwards


Internet access is essential for so many important areas of daily life including education, helping businesses, creating jobs as well as expanding access to healthcare and government services.

Janet Mills


The Affordable Connectivity Program can help Maine families save money on the internet connection they need to work, study, see a doctor, and keep in touch with friends and family.

Universal broadband access is essential in creating a more economically competitive and equitable Maryland. Every Marylander deserves access to high-speed internet.

My administration’s priority is to ensure that we are seizing this opportunity and expanding the program in the most effective and equitable way possible.


Charlie Baker


The internet is a critical tool for learning, working, and staying connected. Since taking office, the Baker-Polito Administration has prioritized expanding broadband internet to previously unserved and underserved communities across central and western Massachusetts, and we have worked hard to extend connectivity to more than 40,000 people in those regions. The federal Affordable Connectivity Program is an important resource in helping further these efforts to close Massachusetts’ digital divide and we will continue to support its adoption across the Commonwealth.


Gretchen Whitmer


With affordable high-speed internet as our tool, we can grow our economy, create jobs, and improve healthcare and education outcomes.

My administration will continue working to ensure that every Mississippi family has the opportunity to get connected with the technology that is helping to power the economy of tomorrow.

Increasing internet access for families across Missouri is a priority for our administration and critical to the future economic growth of our state. We know that many families, farms, and businesses still lack high-speed internet access. We want to change that. We want more Missourians connected. That’s why we have allocated nearly $400 million this year to develop and expand broadband access and are committed to increasing awareness of available opportunities for Missourians to get connected. If we can put electricity in every home, we can do the same today with broadband.

As we make critical infrastructure investments across the country, we must improve not only the roads that bring our residents to work and school, but the broadband that connects our community members to opportunities and each other. Bridging the digital divide requires an all-of-government approach to capitalizing on the full array of resources at our disposal, including the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that high-speed internet is more than just a luxury — it’s a basic right.

Reliable, high-speed internet is an essential part of providing world-class education, healthcare, and business opportunities to hardworking Texans across the state. Last year, I made broadband expansion an emergency item during the legislative session and as a result I signed six broadband bills, including appropriating more than $500 million, to significantly expand broadband access throughout Texas. Through programs like the Affordable Connectivity Program, more families and businesses will be able to afford high-speed internet as we continue shrinking the digital gap so that every Texan – and American – has the opportunity to succeed.


Spencer Cox


The massive shifts in remote work we’ve seen in the past two years make broadband access an increasingly essential tool for our workforce and our students.

High-speed internet access is critical in the 21st Century economy, and it’s essential that we work to bring access to every corner of our states. Here in Vermont, it’s a top priority, and we’ve dedicated hundreds of millions of dollars to advance our efforts to get to the last mile. Additionally, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is helping to make our new connectivity affordable for everyone. For rural states like mine, bringing reliable high-speed access to every community will not only improve quality of life, but generate economic growth, making our villages and towns more vibrant and resilient.


Jim Justice


Education is the centerpiece of everything we do in West Virginia, and in today’s world that means making sure every single one of our students has access to the high-speed Internet connectivity they need to take full advantage of digital learning in the classroom. My administration has been working hard to bring computer science education into every school and to bring broadband to every corner of our state, especially in some of our more rural areas. But we still have a ways to go, and by maximizing the federal government’s new Affordable Connectivity Program we have an opportunity to get eligible households in our state needed help to pay for internet. By using all the resources at our disposal, I truly believe that our wonderful students in West Virginia will have an incredibly bright future.
