Benefit Screener Updated to Include Affordable Connectivity Program
On May 9, 2022, The Biden-Harris administration announced the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), deemed as a huge step forward in closing the digital divide that faces millions of households across the nation. Single Stop jumped into designing, testing, and implementing ACP in their comprehensive benefit eligibility screener, and proudly launched it on May 17, a week after the initial ACP announcement from the White House.
The ACP allows eligible families to reduce their high-speed internet service costs by up to $30 a month. Current Single Stop users can log in to their accounts and update/confirm their demographic information. They will automatically be screened for eligibility and rescreened for all existing federal and state benefits.
Single Stop’s benefit screener helps determine a household’s eligibility for up to 19 federal and state programs; most notably, Pell Grant, Medicaid, SNAP, WIC and free tax preparation to name a few.
A non-profit organization, Single Stop’s mission is to equip others to build pathways out of poverty by leveraging partnerships and technology to connect people to valuable resources. Single Stop provides customers with quality technology, training, and technical assistance to educational institutions, human services organizations, cooperations, and government agencies.
