LBL E-rate Services

November 29, 2018

The Schools and Libraries (E-rate) Program provides discounts to assist eligible schools and libraries to obtain affordable internet access and telecommunications services. E-rate funds four service types: Data Transmission Services and Internet Access, Internal Connections, Managed Internal Broadband Services, and Basic Maintenance of Internal Connections. Discounts range from 20-90 percent of the costs of eligible services, depending on the level of poverty and the urban/rural status at the school district level.

How can we help?

Linn Benton Lincoln ESD (LBL) offers a variety of E-rate services to help take the stress off of navigating the E-rate process and to maximize the funding you receive. LBL can assist districts to apply for and track E-rate funding, while helping to make sure each district stays in compliance with program rules.  Our Application Services include assisting applicants through the entire lifecycle of the E-rate application process as well as providing staff training and yearly reports on your E-rate funding.  We also offer Additional Services that include District Needs Assessments, Project Management, and Audit Support.  To see a full list of our services and pricing please visit our Services Page.
