The E-Rate Program has provided up to $2.25 billion in funding annually to schools and offers eligible schools discounts on telecommunications services, Internet access and internal connections. In July 2014, the FCC voted to modernize the E-Rate program to help schools and libraries save money on telecommunications equipment. This effort, known as E-Rate 2.0, makes available an additional $1 billion in funds to address school and library needs with wireless and broadband connections. Learn about the changes in the E-Rate program, how to apply for funds with the new rules, and most importantly, how to save money with your discount rate and Category 2 budget.
