American Rescue Plan: Includes $7.2 Billion for E-Rate

The House passed the American Rescue Plan on March 10th and the bill is expected to be signed by President Biden on Friday March 12.  The bill includes $7.2 Billion in funding support for connected learning to be administered by the FCC’s E-Rate program.  The funding will be available through September 30, 2030.  The FCC will most likely conduct a comment period before finalizing rules for the new funding. 

See the section on E-Rate from the Senate version of the bill on March 10, 2021.
