Emergency Connectivity Fund Buying Guide: Wireless Broadband Routers for School Buses

May 28, 2021

School bus Wi-Fi equipment for distance learning is eligible for funding through the Emergency Connectivity Fund

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) of 2021 is a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, with $7.1 billion earmarked for the Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF). The ECF provides “funding for schools and libraries for the purchase, during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, of connected devices and broadband connections for use by students, school staff, and library patrons.” More specifically, this funding has been set aside for remote teaching and learning at locations other than schools and libraries. The FCC has elected to distribute the fund through a process similar to the E-Rate application system.
