FCC Announces Third Window for ECF Applications

The Federal Communications Commission announced that it is opening a third application filing window to award at least $1 billion in Emergency Connectivity Fund support. The third application filing window will open on April 28, 2022 and close on May 13, 2022. During this time, eligible schools and libraries can submit requests for funding to purchase eligible equipment and services between July 1, 2022, and December 31, 2023.  The FCC anticipates, given past demand, this will likely be the last opportunity for schools and libraries to request funding before the remaining Emergency Connectivity Funds are exhausted.
