What is E-Rate?

E-rate is a federal program that provides elegible schools and libraries with discounts of betwween 20 -90% on elegible services.  The E-rate program is administered by the School and Libraries Division (SLD) of the Universal Service Administration Company (USAC). The Program was created as part of The Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996 to ensure that all eligible schools and libraries have affordable access to modern telecommunications and information services.
