The new cap represents a 1 percent inflation-adjusted increase in the $3.9 billion cap from funding year 2015. The Commission began indexing the funding cap to inflation in 2010 to ensure that E-rate program funding keeps pace with the changing broadband and telecommunications needs of schools and libraries.
