Bridging the Digital Divide

Online school? Virtual doctor visits? Job searches? We all need internet access.

As the Office of Broadband, our mission is to develop and execute equitable and resilient broadband availability through the engagement of stakeholders, community partners and residents to enable Harris County to connect, work and innovate.

Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

The Affordable Connectivity Program provides a discount of up to a $30 per month toward broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for qualifying households on qualifying Tribal lands. The benefit also provides up to a $100 per household discount toward a one-time purchase of a computer, laptop, or tablet if the household contributes more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase through a participating broadband provider.

Digital Navigators

Digital Navigators help eligible households overcome enrollment barriers for government subsidized ACP. The navigators will work to increase ACP enrollment as a result of their ACP Outreach Grant Program funded activities.

Enabling Broadband Access & Availability

Broadband access in unserved and underserved locations, areas with high social vulnerability, and limited access to middle and last mile.
