Interested in learning more about the Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) and its application process?

Join the LTC’s Mindy Fiscus, Illinois’ Digital Access Coordinator, for a virtual workshop taking you step-by-step through the ECF application process. Along the way, you’ll learn the full scope of potential ECF uses, including for both schools and libraries that have identified an unmet need for devices and connectivity options that support remote learning and closing the homework gap.

Tune in to learn how your district can take full advantage of these newly-released federal funds during the upcoming school year!
