We can also help you find and understand funding opportunities to help support your technology goals. E-Rate is a federal funding program designed to help schools receive discounts of up to 90 percent on telecommunication services, Internet access, internal connection, and basic maintenance.

As one of the Midwest’s leading service providers for the federal E-Rate program, our staff has more than 16 years of experience with the program. Our in-depth understanding of the E-Rate program benefits schools because we understand what you need to do to get funding approved. We will do all we are permitted, as a vendor under program rules, to assist you in getting funding. Our team has provided more than $40 million of network infrastructure projects to schools since 1998.
