FCC to Fully Fund Category One and Two for E-Rate Supported Services


The FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau announced that it will fully fund category one and two requests for E-Rate supported services for funding year 2023.  On March 29, 2023, USAC submitted a demand estimate for the E-Rate program for funding year 2023 of $2.944 billion, which included an estimate demand for category one services of $1.658 billion and of $1.286 billion for category two services.  The Bureau previously announced that the funding cap for funding year 2023 is $4.768 billion, which exceeds the estimated demand, allowing the FCC to fully fund each category for E-Rate supported services.
