    E-Rate in Nevada

    The FCC's E-rate program makes telecommunications and information services more affordable for schools and libraries. With funding from the Universal Service Fund, E-rate provides discounts for telecommunications, Internet access and internal connections to eligible schools and libraries.

      What is E-Rate?

      The Schools and Library Program, also known as E-rate, is a federal program designed to help schools and libraries afford telecommunication services. As of December, 2014, $3.9 BILLION is available annually to help subsidize these costs. School districts can receive federal reimbursements for up to 90% of the cost of their connectivity services.
