Have you heard? The FCC has announced a third round of Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) funding to help schools and libraries secure the tools and services needed to facilitate remote learning and close the homework gap.
Need help applying for this round of federal funding? Join the LTC’s Mindy Fiscus for this virtual workshop, which will walk you through completing and submitting ECF Form 471. Participants will also have the chance to take part in a hands-on application demo as well as get answers to their questions from Illinois’ ECF State Coordinator.
To fully participate in this workshop, participants are asked to come prepared with:
– A general understanding of the ECF program (more information can be found at https://ltcillinois.org/services/funding-and-access/)
– A general understanding of how your district is defining “unmet needs” and how many devices and/or connections you will be seeking
– Documentation (quotes and POs) with detailed descriptions of desired products and services
– An internet-ready device
– Your EPiC login and password
