The E-Rate program has changed substantially over the years. The application process is now less cumbersome and not all E-rate services eligible for reimbursement require filtering. This information session will cover the most current information on the application process. Consider the place E-Rate may have with new developments in your library or library system – E-Rate may be a way to help fund sustainable library technology expansion and significantly increase broadband connectivity.
