E-Rate Services

E-rate program, also known as the Schools and Libraries program, makes telecommunications and information services more affordable for schools and libraries in America. Mandated by Congress in 1996 and implemented by the FCC in 1997, the E-rate provides discounted telecommunications, Internet access, and internal connections to eligible schools and libraries.

E-rate program is administered by the Schools and Libraries Division (SLD) of the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC). Funding is based on poverty and your rural or urban status.
