The Emergency Connectivity Fund: What School Districts Should Know

05/27/2021 1:00 pm

The Federal Communications Commission recently unveiled its Emergency Connectivity Fund Program designed to enable schools and libraries to buy laptop and tablet computers and to establish Wi-Fi hotspots and broadband connectivity during the pandemic.

The FCC’s May 11 action includes more than $7 billion to specifically close the nationwide homework gap associated with distance learning as a direct result of COVID-19. Congress created the fund as part of the American Rescue Plan Act.

Our NJSBA TEC partner, E-rate Consulting, Inc., will explain the program’s rules, help you determine your district’s eligibility for the new program and provide tips for a successful funding application process, slated to begin in June.
