Funds For Learning Survey Reveals Priorities of E-rate Applicants

As a follow-up to a survey conducted in 2008-09, Funds For Learning has released results from its national 2012 Survey of E-rate Applicants. The results indicate a continued reliance on E-rate funding, particularly for broadband connectivity. In fact, 42 percent of respondents say Internet access is the most important category of service in the E-rate program. Approximately 90 percent of respondents indicate that E-rate funding is critical to their success, but only 30 percent believe the program is adequately funded. Responses were gathered over two months, and the aggregate results will be shared with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in hopes of positively influencing E-rate policy.

E-rate funding application assistance

 According to analysis by Funds For Learning, the next 15 days of the Funding Year 2011 E-rate filing window should be very busy. An estimated 19.5 percent of applicants file the Form 471 within 20 days of the close of the filing window.
