$400/Student Available for Devices

$250 for Wi-Fi Hotspots (+ $10-$25/Month for Data)

Adjustments to the E-Rate program were made specifically to help schools prepare for remote and hybrid learning. That includes building infrastructure for remote connectivity, i.e. Wi-Fi Hotspots. 

Need more than hardware?

Education takes a lot more than tech. Especially in the wake of remote learning, schools are looking to make an investment in their people to help build technology fluency and address lost learning time. Help your teachers enrich instruction and transform the learning experience! Trafera can help you navigate other federal funds (like CARES and ESSER) for use in professional development, digital curriculum, and more.

As a tech director for a school district we are constantly looking for vendors that offer quality products at an affordable price. This company not only does that but also is both professional (with a personal touch) and quick to respond to any questions or issues. It is always a pleasure to work with Trafera staff! Susan Moore
One of the best vendors our District works with. The warranty, support, and sales are top notch. This is one of those rare vendors that we feel like there is a partnership not just a sales/support transaction. Ben Bayle
This vendor does a great job finding the services and equipment we need. They give us the best price possible. Their representatives are knowledgeable, professional, nice, and helpful. Suzette McIntyre
