This event has passed.
There are big changes on the E-rate horizon! E-rate is an important federal program to many libraries that provides discounts to assist schools and public libraries in the United States to obtain affordable Internet access and connections. Join us to learn about the new E-Rate Productivity Center (EPC), and new ways to file forms, track application status and communicate with the FCC. Whether you have participated in E-rate in the past, or are looking to apply for the first time, you will want to know about these changes.
This workshop will cover the basics of the E-rate program and demonstrate how to access and use your EPC account to submit your Funding Year 2016 E-rate application. Get the information you need to be successful in your application.
Presented by: Christa Burns, E-rate Coordinator for Libraries, Library Development Consultant, Nebraska Library Commission
