The Telecommunications Act of 1996 provides for a federally funded program called the Universal Service Fund (USF) or E-Rate Program that is designed to provide affordable access to telecommunications services for all eligible schools and libraries in the United States. Funded at up to $2.25 billion annually, the program provides discounts on telecommunications services, Internet access and internal connections.

Program Administration and How to Apply

The E-Rate Program is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC).
