Beginning in FY2021 all applicant budgets will be reset to the full amount eligible under the new rules. As part of this modification, the FCC will adopt district-wide and library system-wide budget calculations.

School districts and library systems will now have a single budget to administer, and the per-site funding “floor” will increase from $9,200 to $25,000. New budget multiplier factors are $167/student for schools, and $4.50/square foot for libraries.
