E-Rate Support

The FCC's E-Rate program makes telecommunications and information services more affordable for schools and libraries.  With funding from the Universal Service Fund (fcc.gov/general/universal-service-fund), E-Rate provides discounts for telecommunications, Internet access, and internal connections to eligible schools and libraries.

The ongoing proliferation of innovative digital learning technologies and the need to connect students, teachers and consumers to jobs, life-long learning, and information have led to a steady rise in demand for bandwidth in schools and libraries.  In recent years, the FCC refocused E-Rate from legacy telecommunications services to broadband, with a goal to significantly expand Wi-Fi access.  These steps to modernize the program are helping E-Rate keep pace with the need for increased Internet access.

I look forward to assisting you with all thing E-Rate.  Please email me with any questions.
