Funding Educational Technology

There are many mechanisms available to obtain funding for educational technology devices, infrastructure, and related services.

The Office of Educational Design and Technology has created a funding matrix to help administrators compare the features of some of these funding mechanisms.

In addition, there may be technology-related federal funding available from the U.S. Department of Education and the Institute of Education Sciences (IES).

The Governor’s New NY Broadband program may be a source of funds for community and educational technology-related infrastructure.
