E-rate 471 Virtual Workshops

NOTE: Due to health/safety concerns, all E-Rate 471 workshops for the FY22 cycle will be held virtually.

Starting this month, the LTC will once again offer several workshops to support schools and libraries as they complete the E-Rate 471 form, which is used to receive discounts and reimbursements on internet access and network equipment for the 22-23 school year. These workshops will walk participants through filling out and submitting Form 471, including hands-on demos and the opportunity to obtain guidance from a seasoned E-Rate expert.

As part of the E-Rate application process, ALL APPLICANTS MUST SUBMIT A FORM 471 EVERY YEAR FOR SERVICES, NEW OR ONGOING. Form 471 is a request for discounts on eligible products and services. Acceptable Form 471 submissions must include information on the recipients of services, discount calculations, costs of service, dates of service, and service provider(s). Applicants must have Form 470 filed at least 28 days before filing Form 471. After that 28 day window, contracts may be signed, and additional details needed for the application can be discussed with the chosen providers.

The FY22-23 E-rate 471 application window will open on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, and close March 22, 2022, so individuals filing on behalf of their district should plan ahead to ensure they have the support needed to complete their application on time.
