Each year MOREnet seeks E-rate discounts on Internet access and other services on behalf of eligible MOREnet members. The Universal Service Fund for Schools and Libraries, also known as the E-rate Program, has traditionally provided discounts on telecommunication services, Internet access and internal connections for all public and private schools and libraries. In 2014, some enhancements to the program were made include wireless access points, routers and other equipment for to deploy a robust Wi-Fi for educational technology. The Universal Service Program is administered by the Schools and Libraries Division (SLD).
E-rate provides discounts of 20-90 percent on the cost of eligible services. Discounts are based on the number of students eligible for the National Free and Reduced Lunch Program and the location of the organization (rural or urban).
