As Congress begins to accelerate its work on both supplemental funding for Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 and regular appropriations for FY 2025, we write on behalf of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Committee on Communications, USCCB Committee on Catholic Education, the Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA) and Catholic Charities USA, to bring to your attention an urgent need for the continuation of funding for the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). We urge Congress to move swiftly to secure continued funding for this important program, by enacting H.R. 6929/S. 3565, the “Affordable Connectivity Program Extension Act of 2024”, legislation introduced in the House and Senate by a bipartisan group of lawmakers, and by providing funding through the regular or supplemental appropriations processes.
