The FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB) has set the 2021 funding year caps for the E-Rate and Rural Health Care (RHC) programs.  Each new funding cap represents a 1.2 percent inflation-based increase.  The Commission began increasing these programs’ funding caps in 2010 to incorporate inflation in order to keep these funding programs up to date with the changing needs of schools, libraries, and rural health care providers.  The E-Rate program will have a 2021 funding cap of about $4.276 billion while the RHC program will have a 2021 funding cap of about $612 million.
