Additional Telecommunications Funding Available
A third Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) Program application filing window opens April 28, 2022.
Another $1 billion will be awarded under this program that aids students and school staff who need financial assistance to obtain sufficient connectivity to engage in remote learning at home to keep up with schoolwork. You may apply again if you have additional needs – or anew if you have not done so this past summer. The application period closes on May 13, 2022.
The following types of equipment may be purchased for off-campus use: laptop and tablet computers, Wi-Fi hotspots, modems (including air cards), routers and devices that combine a modem and router.
Catholic schools are eligible to apply on behalf of their students but should not be direct recipients of the funds. Contract with the vendors who will use the SPI form to be reimbursed from the USAC administrator. The schools are not required to register in SAM.gov – the vendor registers.
