Tribal Training

USAC created the Tribal Training initiative to help Schools and Libraries (E-rate) Program applicants on Tribal lands participate effectively in the E-rate Program. Our goal is to reduce the digital divide and promote high-speed broadband connectivity to Tribal schools and libraries.

Members of the E-rate Program staff are available to help Tribal applicants navigate the program, assist with solving and preventing funding issues, answer questions, provide training materials and guidance, and more.

Monthly Call

The E-rate Program hosts a monthly call for Tribal E-rate Program applicants. The monthly call is a chance for prospective E-rate Program applicants to engage with the E-rate team to discuss special topics, share program updates, and ask any questions.

Monthly calls are generally held at 4:00 p.m. ET on the second Tuesday of each month. Any schedule changes will be noted below. Contact the USAC Tribal Liaison for the call-in information and agenda.
