Now is the time to invest back into the E-rate program just as it is impacting our communities. Together we can build a stronger E-rate program and secure its mission for years to come.

The Modernization Order that expanded federal E-rate funding to include broadband and internet services will expire in 2020. To inform the Federal Communications Commission in evaluating and refreshing the vitality of the $4 billion program, Funds For Learning announces its eighth annual E-rate Applicant Survey.

By participating, schools and libraries enrolled in the E-rate program can submit direct feedback to the FCC without the burden of preparing individual and formal responses. Each year, Funds For Learning compiles this information and presents it to the FCC in an annual E-rate Trends Report that highlights applicants’ need for E-rate support.

“This survey is specifically designed to gather your responses and inform important decision makers in Washington D.C.,” said John Harrington, CEO of Funds For Learning. “Now is the time to invest back into the E-rate program just as it is impacting our communities. Together we can build a stronger E-rate program and secure its mission for years to come.”

The eighth annual survey is available to applicants on the Funds For Learning website. Individual responses are kept strictly confidential throughout the survey process and are only used for research and analysis. Once complete, survey data is collected and submitted into the official docket for review by FCC staff and circulated to congressional offices, media outlets and the general public.
