FCC Announces Emergency Connectivity Funding

New round of funding will provide digital services for students.

The Federal Communications Commission is committing funding to schools and libraries across the U.S. under the Emergency Connectivity Program. On Wednesday, the FCC announced $54 million in funding for digital services to benefit roughly 150,000 students in several states, including Florida, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Washington, and West Virginia.

“We need to make sure all our kids have the digital tools they need to connect with teachers and online homework,” Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said. “This latest round of funding brings us closer to our goal of closing the Homework Gap.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Chair Rosenworcel as she oversees the awarding of the connectivity funding.
  • For members of the FCC as they promote the connection of digital services to schools and libraries.
