Funds For Learning® today formally announced its proposal to modernize the E-rate program.

Funds For Learning assists E-rate applicants from across the nation secure E-rate funds under four categories of service, at two priorities: Priority One: telecommunications services and Internet access, and Priority Two: internal connections and basic maintenance of internal connections. The demand for Priority One services exceeds the funding cap for the entire program, leaving the $2.27 billion requested for Priority Two services in doubt.

The Funds For Learning E-rate 2.0 Proposal restructures the current program, calling for an increase in available funds while basing amount of monies received on a per-student basis. The plan also enables schools to choose their own priorities for E-rate funds.
 
E-rate stakeholders can view the proposal in its entirety, as well as other historical data pertaining to the Funds For Learning E-rate 2.0 proposal, here.
