E-rate: What's New for 2020? - Scottsbluff 

This is the morning session of the E-rate/Digital World Training Day at ESU 13 in Scottsbluff. To register for the afternoon session, go to Thriving in a Digital World. Check-in will start at 8:30am, with coffee and breakfast treats provided. There will be a 1 hour lunch break between the workshops – lunch is on your own.

What is E-rate? How do I apply for E-rate? How can my library get its piece of the E-rate pie?

E-rate is a federal program that provides discounts to schools and public libraries on the cost of their Internet Access and Connections to make these services more affordable. This includes Broadband, Fiber, and Wi-Fi Internet access as well as Internal Connections, such as wiring, routers, switches, and other network equipment.

The E-Rate Productivity Center (EPC) is your online portal for all E-rate interactions. With your organizational account you can use EPC to file forms, track your application status, communicate with USAC, and more.

In this workshop, Christa Porter, Nebraska’s State E-rate Coordinator for Public Libraries, will cover the basics of the E-rate program and show you how to access and use your account in EPC to submit your Funding Year 2020 E-rate application. There will also be hands-on time, when you can get assistance completing your E-rate forms.
