What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a U.S. government program run by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices like a laptop or tablet.

You are likely eligible if your household’s 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 and Reduced-Price Lunch (The Scott County Schools are CEP and all students receive free lunches).

We regretfully announce that the 2022 Heritage Festival will not occur this Fall. Our staff and students look forward to this event every year, and we are dedicated to its return. Our new staff is working hard to return the Museum of Scott County to a hands-on experience that the whole community can be proud of once again. We will assess the progress in January and decide on a Spring Festival or a return next fall. We will be opening the museum grounds and activities in phases throughout the year. Please check our social media accounts and website for updates on progress.  If you have any further questions, please call 423-701-0168 or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
