FCC Funds Emergency Connectivity Program

The program seeks to provide homework assistance under the “Learn Without Limits” initiative.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced a funding commitment of almost $5.2 million through the Emergency Connectivity Fund Program. This initiative plans to provide digital tools and services to support students in communities nationwide. The funding will benefit approximately 14,000 students across the country, including those in California, New Jersey, and Wisconsin, in approximately 23 schools and school districts. The program will enable off-campus learning opportunities such as homework assistance and summer online programs.

FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said, “In this digital era, broadband connections and digital tools are vital to students’ everyday lives and learning. These connections and tools will only grow in importance as they continue to provide access to new and dynamic ways of learning. That’s why we’re pleased to announce another round of funding to help close the Homework Gap for students.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Chair Rosenworcel to seek God’s direction as she heads the FCC.
  • For FCC commissioners as they collaborate with U.S. education officials to close the “homework gap” for American students.
