Affordable Connectivity Program & Green Card

Recently, I entered some basic info (firstname, lastname, dob etc) on Affordable Connectivity Program application page on an internet service provider website called Spectrum to see if it can reduce internet bill. I expected the application page to ask for household information as well but it did not and it directly submitted an application with just basic info. Couple of days later, i got an email that the application was approved and now there is a $30 credit on my internet bill. From an household income stand point, I do not qualify for that.

Does anyone know if this will have an impact on my green card application (because looks like this program is for people with low income) ?


As per the guidelines, this is a federal assistance program and may or may not be a factor for the green card in the future.

If I was in your place, I would not opt for it as it is meant for a low-income family and you certainly won’t be able to defend it if questioned in future (you never know when they may change the rules!)

To add to what Anil just mentioned, there could also be fraud charges/ penalties for fraudulently claiming any Federal benefits, something to keep in mind.
