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