New Policy Brief Estimating participation in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)
ARNIC published a policy brief today on estimating participation in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Key findings include the fact that using income as the only eligibility criteria results in an undercount of about 14.3M households, or about 29% of the eligible households nationally. Furthermore, the undercount varies widely across states, and is larger in states that expanded Medicaid eligibility following the Affordable Care Act of 2010. To improve the accuracy of estimates, an adjustment factor is proposed.
