Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the ways your household can qualify for the ACP:
Household Income Guidelines
You can qualify for ACP assistance if your income is 135% or less than the Federal Poverty Guidelines (see table below). The guideline is based on your household size and state.
You may be required to show proof of income, such as a tax return or three consecutive pay stubs, when you apply for the ACP program here.
If You Participate in Certain Government Assistance Programs
Federal Assistance Programs
Your household is eligible for the ACP if you (or someone in your household) participate in one of these programs:
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps
- Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)
- Veteran's Pension and Survivors Benefit
- Free and Reduced-Price School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program, including at U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Community Eligible Provision schools in the 2019-20, 2020-21, or 2021-22 school year
- Received a Federal Pell Grant in the current award year
You may need to show a card, letter or official document as proof that you participate in one of these programs when you apply for the ACP.
If You Already Receive a Lifeline Benefit
Lifeline is a FCC program to help make communications services more affordable for low-income consumers. If you currently receive a Lifeline benefit, you automatically qualify for the ACP, and you can receive both benefits at the same time.
Each household can only receive one monthly benefit on one service at a time. You may choose to transfer your benefit to your Hawaiian Telcom Internet service.
