The recording of “The New E-rate: Preparing for Funding Year 2015 and Beyond” online session is now available.
Big changes are coming to E-rate, the federal program that provides discounts to assist schools and public libraries in the United States to obtain affordable Internet access and Connections. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted the E-rate Modernization Order on July 11, 2014. The Order takes major steps to modernize and streamline the E-rate program and focuses on expanding funding for Broadband and WiFi Internet Access. In part to accomplish this, funding for Voice Services (telephone) will be gradually phased out.
What does your library need to know to prepare for these changes? In this workshop, Christa Burns, Nebraska’s State E-rate Coordinator for Libraries, will cover the basics of E-rate and explain the changes that will be made to the program for Funding Year 2015 and beyond.
If you have any questions or need any assistance with your E-rate forms, please contact Christa Burns, 800-307-2665, 402-471-3107.
