Getting Older Adults Online
Aging Connected is helping older adults get at-home internet and thrive online. Where to start? The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a government benefit program that helps eligible low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices.

What we do
Nearly 22 million seniors over the age of 65 lack wireline broadband access at home, which can lead to potentially serious consequences. Aging Connected is a national, cross-sector campaign to bridge the digital divide and help older adults access essential public health information, social services, online community, and more through affordable, accessible internet. Through publishing original research and raising awareness of low-cost internet options, our goal is to get more seniors online and expand access to affordable broadband internet.
So much of today’s information, communication, and fun happens online, that the internet is more essential than ever before. When you’re online, everyday tasks become cheaper, easier, and more efficient. You can use the internet to bring the world into your home.
Older adults can access a variety of completely free courses, programs, and activities to learn new skills, save money, get in shape, and make new friends through the nonprofit organization Senior Planet from AARP’s website: SeniorPlanet.org.
