With the ACP’s funding set to run out later this year, the re-funding drive is underway. While nationwide enrollment levels are often reported to be below 30 percent, the numbers vary widely by region. Luckily, the Benton Institute has undertaken the heavy lifting to create an easy to use tool to track ACP enrollment down to the zip code level.
According to its authors, “the Benton Institute’s ACP Performance Tool is a resource for any community that wants to answer the question: “How are ACP sign-ups going?” To answer, search a 5-digit zip code on the tool’s website. It returns results that show two important numbers for the zip code area: 1) how many households have signed up for ACP (from government data) and 2) the expected number of households enrolled.”
