What is E-Rate?
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 libraries.
What benefits are available under the E-Rate Program?
Eligible libraries may receive discounts on eligible category one services (telecommunications, telecommunications services and Internet access) and category two services (internal connections, managed internal broadband services and basic maintenance of internal connections). The discounts range from 20 to 90 percent, with higher discounts for higher poverty and more rural libraries. Libraries are always responsible for paying at least some part of the cost of service.
