There is a government program Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) that both AT&T and Comcast participate in. For eligible households, this program will give a $30 credit. Plus there is an option for getting an additional line for phone, tablet, etc. . An even better program is Internet Essentials. Which provides basic cable for at $9.95 or even free $0.00) after providing documentation for SNAP, Medicaid, housing assistance or Free Lunch and book program at MCCSC.
I have helped several families enroll with this program.
It is easier to do this when you start service or at the end of your agreed contract (1-2 years).
I attached a brochure for this program with Comcast Xfinity.
This is NOT TV. But only for cable, to get wireless, so school kids and you can interact with school, etc.
The families are able to watch TV, many different free channels using wireless and Roku (or Amazon Fire, etc).

The Public charge has never applied to asylum seekers applicants, but was intended to apply to those seeking status as a family members of someone with a green card or citizen
USDA and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security released a letter clarifying that applying for or receiving SNAP does not make someone a public charge and will not be considered in a public charge determination.
Applying for or receiving SNAP will not affect someone’s ability to: – Remain in the United States – Get a Green Card/Permanent Legal Resident Status, – Keep a Green Card/Permanent Legal Resident Status, or – Become a U.S. Citizen. – SNAP Logo Guidance
You can also apply for SNAP on behalf of the eligible immigrants or U.S. citizens in your family, even if you do not want to apply for benefits for yourself, without affecting your or their immigration status. For example, if a parent is not eligible for SNAP because of their immigration status, they can still apply for their eligible children. The SNAP office is not allowed to ask for immigration documents for people who are not applying to receive benefits themselves.
If you need food help, and you or members of your household qualify, please apply for SNAP for yourself or your family. Do it for your family’s good!
For more information relating to general immigration information in English or in Spanish, please call USCIS at 1-800-375-5283.
For general information about SNAP, please call 1-800-221-5689 (English only) or 202-720-2791 (English and Spanish) to be connected to your state’s SNAP hotline.
-So, if you have questions, reach out and we will put you in touch with local organizations who can help you walk through this.
Similarly, having Emergency Medicaid does NOT jeopardize your immigration process
” Applying for or receiving Medicaid or CHIP benefits, or getting savings for health insurance costs in the Marketplace, doesn’t make someone a “public charge”. This means it won’t affect their chances of becoming a Lawful Permanent Resident or U.S. citizen.”
The one exception is if you are in a long term care facility (nursing home), at government expense. But not routine medical treatment.
Four people detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at the Clay County Jail in Indiana filed a federal lawsuit today exposing how the county’s government has illegally used revenue from its ICE contract to award raises to county employees and pay for operations and capital improvements at unrelated county facilities, while leaving immigrants to suffer in the jail’s inhumane conditions. The lawsuit also details how the federal government’s immigration inspections system has turned a blind eye to unsanitary conditions and human suffering inside the jail.
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Getting Latinos in Indiana into college — that’s what one group aims to do with the help of a special one-week summer program.
According to the 2021 Indiana College Equity report, only 49 percent of Hispanic high school graduates go to college compared to 61 percent of white students. Project Stepping Stone of Indiana (PSS) wants to change that.
Project Stepping Stone of Indiana is a program of the Escala Foundation that helps Indiana’s Latino students prepare for college and beyond.
