The Colorado Broadband Office released the following statement in regards to the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) announcement that without additional funding from Congress, the allotted $14.2 billion to fund the ACP is projected to run out in April 2024 (this date is an estimate and may change). As a result, the FCC has begun taking steps to wind down the ACP, and is ceasing enrollment on Feb. 7, 2024.

"We cannot overstate the importance of making the internet affordable. It is a crucial piece in bridging the digital divide and reducing inequalities in Colorado. Congress' decision to no longer fund the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is unfortunate. We believe the ACP offers the solution to making internet affordable nationwide. We will pursue ways to make access to the internet affordable for all Colorado families because affordability is a critical piece of universal broadband."
