The FCC’s E-Rate Program allows for eligible schools and libraries with funding from the Universal Service Fund to enhance digital learning and stay connected with telecommunications and information services made affordable.
The E-Rate Program holds two categories for funding. Category 1 Services include Broadband and Internet Access where Category 2 Services cover Wi-Fi Infrastructure needs.

Calculate your Category 2 Funds
C2 Budget is calculated by number of students in a school multiplied by a specific dollar figure. C2 budgets are pre-discount five-year plans based on the number of students in your school.
Here is an example: A high school has 100 full‐time students, 50 part‐time students that attend classes in the morning, and 25 part‐time students that attend classes in the afternoon. The school should report a maximum of 50 part‐time students. This would result in a C2 budget calculation of $22,500, or (100+50) full‐ and part‐time students x $156.23
