The FCC Commits $50 million in Emergency Connectivity Funding to Schools and Libraries – none in Minnesota

The FCC reports

The Federal Communications Commission today announced that it is committing over $50 million in the 15th wave of Emergency Connectivity Fund program support, helping to close the Homework Gap.  This latest round of funding is supporting 46 schools, 7 libraries, and 2 consortia across the country, including for students in American Samoa, Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Ohio, and the US Virgin Islands.  The FCC just wrapped up its third filing window for applications last week and will be announcing results in coming days.

No awards were made in Minnesota.
