Nationwide, enrollment in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) has reached 33.7% of eligible households. But enrollment across the nation varies greatly depending on location.
The Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), a CBAN advocate member, has created an excellent tool for tracking ACP adoption at the website acpdashboard.com. Among the states, adoption ranges from a high of 46.3% in Louisiana to a low of just 11.6% in North Dakota.
CBAN currently has members in 20 states, and ACP adoption still has a long way to go in those states.
ILSR is estimating that about $8.7 Billion remains in the ACP and that at current adoption rates the fund will be depleted sometime next spring or summer.
There is expected to be significant pressure on Congress to find additional funding for the ACP, but so far no legislation has been advanced.
