E-Rate Program Expertise

We help you receive up to 90% funding for Category 1 and up to 85% funding for Category 2 services

The E-Rate Program helps schools and libraries in the US acquire telecommunications and internet access services with funding and discounts. As a trusted technology provider for schools, IT for Education is well-versed in E-Rate rules and regulations. We have helped countless academic institutions access these federal subsidies so they can integrate fast and expansive Wi-Fi access, and other improvements to their internet and voice network infrastructure.
