The FCC announced last week that they will open a third Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) application window on April 28th which will close at 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 13th. There is a minimum of $1 billion available to provide up to $400 per end user devices including laptops, Chromebooks, or tablets. The available funding can also be used for recurring services such as Wi-Fi hotspots and bus Wi-Fi for up to 12 additional months on top of what has already been funded. This order will allow for equipment and services to be delivered within the 18-month span from July 1, 2022, through December 31, 2023.
Kellogg & Sovereign Consulting’s experts are available to assist eligible schools and libraries who would like to apply for support for eligible equipment and services for students, school staff and library patrons with unmet needs.
