E-Rate Technical Assistance Program
Manage the Cost of Connectivity
The E-Rate Technical Assistance Program is available to eligible K-12 schools and public libraries, providing affordable access to modern telecommunications and information services. This federal program, formally known as the Universal Service Fund for Schools and Libraries is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), and provides discounts on telecommunications, Internet access service costs and internal connections.
The E-Rate program has provided more than $1 billion to Ohio schools and libraries for their telecommunications and Internet services, as well as internal connections equipment and basic maintenance costs.
