E-Rate Funding

What Is E-Rate?

The E-Rate program provides discounts to public K-12 schools and public libraries purchasing data transmission services, telecommunications services, Internet access, Internet connections, and basic maintenance of internal connections.  Click here to view a list of current eligible services.

Who Can Participate in E-Rate?

Eligible customers include, but are not limited to K-12 public schools, school districts, charter schools, and public libraries.  Customers should have an approved technology plan and file the proper Schools and Libraries Division forms in a timely manner.

How We Make Using E-Rate Easy

We have simplified the procurement process for products and services that qualify for E-Rate funding by filing the Form 470 with USAC on select RFOs.  Contracts awarded under these RFO’s are considered E-Rate Eligible.
