On Wednesday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that due to “outstanding demand and the recent spike in coronavirus cases,” the Commission will open a second application filing window for its Emergency Connectivity Fund Program.  During the second application filing window, which will run from September 28th  to October 13th, eligible schools and libraries can apply for financial support to purchase eligible equipment and services for students, school staff, and library patrons with unmet needs.  California schools and libraries are eligible for $812,045,890.55 in funding.
