The Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), which runs the E-rate discount program for the FCC, has released its first wave of funding commitments to  applicants for the 2016 E-rate Funding Year.

Congratulations to the following 28 Texas public libraries who applied for E-rate discounts this year and have been included in this first wave:
