The Universal Service Fund for Schools and Libraries, also known as the E-rate Program, provides federal discounts on telecommunication services, Internet access and internal connections for all public and private schools and libraries. E-rate provides discounts of 20- 90 percent on eligible services. We file for discounts on Internet access and other connectivity-related items, but there are other services that are also eligible. If you want to get the most out of your budget by maximizing your E-rate discount, we can help. Our E-rate experts provide online and in—person training and are always available to answer questions.
