FCPS, county libraries to get $1.2 million for laptops, hotspots

September 5, 2023

Frederick County’s schools and libraries will receive federal money to benefit students who lack internet connectivity at home. The grant comes as part of the federal Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF), which was created through the American Rescue Plan. Schools and libraries across the country who apply and are selected can use the money to “cover reasonable costs of laptop and tablet computers; Wi-Fi hotspots; modems; routers; and broadband connectivity purchases for off-campus use by students, school staff, and library patrons,” according to the Federal Communications Commission’s website.
