Comments Due: Modernizing the E-Rate Program for Schools and Libraries

Federal Communications Commission

Saturday, August 17, 2019 - 4:59am

The Federal Communications Commission proposes to make permanent the category two budget approach adopted in 2014 (the ‘‘category two’’ budget approach consists of five-year budgets for schools and libraries that provide a maximum amount of funding to support internal connections needed for Wi-Fi within school and library buildings). The FCC also seeks comment on potential modifications that could simplify the category two budget approach and decrease the administrative burden on schools and libraries, as well as how to transition to a permanent extension of the budget approach.

Comments are due on or before August 16, 2019 and reply comments are due on or before September 3, 2019.
