The E-Rate program was a provision of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, historically funded at up to $2.5 billion annually to provide discounts in three categories: internet access, basic maintenance, and internal connections hardware. The program ensures that schools, libraries, and healthcare facilities across the U.S. are connected to information and resources through the internet.
Public or private schools (K-12), libraries, groups of schools and libraries (districts/systems), and rural healthcare organizations can apply for discounts on eligible technologies like Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) and Ethernet services.
