Ten Thousand Tablets
January 27 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Ten Thousand Tablets is a project in partnership with Connecting Portland, Portland Forward & Sano Health, as a certified distributor of the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), formally EBB. We are working with community leaders to provide a smart tablet device with free unlimited internet access to 10,000 eligible income-constrained household in the Portland Metro area. For a one-time payment of $10.01*, those who qualify will receive a Samsung tablet, with 5 years of unlimited service, through Verizon. Credit and debit cards are accepted. Folks are likely eligible if the household income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line, or if you or someone you live with currently receives a government benefit like SNAP, Medicaid, SSI, WIC, Pell Grant, or Free & Reduced-Price Lunch. Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per
household. To receive the connected device discount, consumers need to enroll in the ACP with a participating provider that offers connected devices.
