In response to demand, the Federal Communications Commission has announced a second opportunity for schools and libraries to apply for a share of the $7.17 billion Emergency Connectivity Fund that was provided as part of COVID-19 relief efforts under the American Rescue Plan. The program aims to help close the homework gap, an extension of the digital divide in which students who lack home access to broadband connections or technology devices are left at a disadvantage when it comes to completing digital assignments. The technological investments made to close this divide due to the pandemic fast-tracked plans that were already in place in many districts. Demonstrating return on those expenses will include integrating school-issued devices and expanded connectivity into curricula, while expanding and deepening opportunities for learning and engagement.
Deadline: The second opportunity to apply will begin on September 28, 2021, and run through October 13, 2021.
