E-Rate Program Overview


Presented by:

 President, E-Rate Advantage

E-Rate is a federal program schools can take advantage of to help pay for Internet access network equipment and maintenance of network equipment. While this is a free resource for schools, many find the E-Rate program intimidating, time consuming and confusing. This webinar will provide you with an overview of the E-Rate program. You will learn about who is eligible, gain insight into the process, and find out how to apply (even if your school has not yet opened). We will discuss Category 1 and Category 2 products and services, how to calculate your budgets, what your school requirements are, as well as how to get setup in the E-Rate EPC portal. If you have ever had questions about the E-Rate program or been intimidated by the process, we suggest you listen to this webinar and ask an expert.
