About E-Rate

For our education clients, NSS offers expert guidance to help navigate the Schools and Libraries Program known as E-rate.

This federally funded program financially supports schools and libraries so that they may obtain cost effective telecommunications and Internet access. Funding may be requested under five categories of service: Digital Transmission Services (Telecommunications, Telecommunications Services), Internet Access, Internal Broadband Services (Wi-Fi, Internal Connections, etc.), Managed Internal Broadband Services, and Basic Maintenance of Internal Broadband Services.

NSS has worked with many schools and libraries who have successfully secured E-rate funding. Applying for funding must be completed by the educational institution and they must follow certain guidelines and a set timetable. We can help clients:

  • Analyze state and federal funding options
  • Understand the E-rate application process
  • Administer the application of either BEAR or SPI reimbursements
