Influence and Advocacy Committee Update
Support the
Affordable Connectivity Program
EducationSuperHighway continues to work to close the digital divide for students across the country. They recently announced the Affordable Connectivity Program will run out of funding at the end of April unless Congress takes action to renew the benefit.
Support of congressional leaders in Massachusetts is needed to make continued funding possible. 368,000 households in Massachusetts rely on the ACP to get and stay online. Please help by calling your congressional leaders, asking them to co-sponsor the ACP Extension Act (HR 6929/S.3565) and urge leadership to prioritize passing funding before April 30th.
Want to get involved with the Influence and Advocacy Committee? Email Colleen Terrill or Karen Winsper for information on how to share your voice in advocacy.
