E-Rate Program

The Schools and Libraries (E-Rate) Program helps schools and libraries connect to broadband Internet and voice services at discounted rates. E-Rate is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), which which is the not-for-profit administrator of the Universal Service Fund with guidance from the FCC.

Broadband Initiative

With assistance from not-for-profit EducationSuperHighway, ADE is working with schools and districts to make the most of the E-Rate dollars available to them. In addition to discounts the school or district is already eligible for through E-Rate, a state match of up to 10% will in turn be matched by E-Rate at the same rate.
