From the Benton Institute for Broadband & Society…

The Benton Institute for Broadband & Society invites you to join us for an online panel discussion on January 18, 2023 at 1:00pm ET/10:00am PT to learn about how the Federal Communications Commission’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is helping connect low-income Americans to the internet, and how and where the program could be leveraged better.

Here’s more info…

The panel – moderated by Drew Garner, State Broadband Policy Advisor at Common Sense Media – will take a closer look at some of these outreach strategies and their impact on ACP enrollment. Drew will be joined by Benton Senior Fellow John Horrigan, who has done extensive research on the ACP enrollment trends, identifying which cities and regions have had greater success and pinpointing why. Dr. Andra Daunhauer, Executive Director at Equal Access to Broadband in Vermont, and Elizabeth Ramirez, Community Digital Navigator of ConnectWaukegan in Illinois will delve deeper into the challenges of getting eligible households enrolled and how their respective projects work creatively and persistently to address these challenges.
