About the Affordable Housing Connectivity Program (AHCP)

Empire State Development's ConnectALL Office (a NYS government agency) in consultation with NYS Homes and Community Renewal, has launched the Affordable Housing Connectivity Program, a first-ever infrastructure initiative to upgrade in-unit broadband infrastructure for low-income, affordable housing residents that currently have unreliable, unaffordable, or nonexistent internet service options in their homes, at no cost to property owners.

By funding infrastructure upgrades to create initial OR open-access building wiring, the State is attracting Internet Service Providers to often-overlooked affordable housing properties so that tenants can access high-quality home internet service at affordable monthly rates.

Property Owners and Housing Authorities:  Take Our Survey to Express Interest

If you are a building owner interested in receiving no-cost new or upgraded broadband infrastructure, regardless of whether your building already has broadband wiring, please complete the Building Conditions Self-Assessment. The information provided will be used to match your property with an Internet Service Provider that will develop an installation plan tailored to your building(s).  

Assistance completing the form is available by emailing Civix (ConnectALL's outreach partner) at or calling 1-504-399-8520. You can request an excel workbook if preferable to completing the online survey.
