Syracuse, N.Y. - The city of Syracuse sounding the alarm as the government's Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) runs out of money in April.

The ACP program helps households pay for high-speed internet access.

Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh, Common Council President Helen Hudson, and City Auditor Alexander Marion issued a joint letter to Syracuse’s congressional delegation, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and Congressman Brandon Williams, calling for action in Washington.

While they credited the federal government with helping Syracuse overcome the digital divide to begin with, funding will be exhausted this month leaving 42% of Syracuse families having to pay a $10 monthly fee and possibly more in the future.
