Schools and Libraries (E-rate)

Urban/Rural Lookup Tool

This tool is designed to help school districts, library systems, and individual schools and libraries determine the individual and aggregate urban vs. rural status which could be used in calculating the maximum discount used in a request for funds.

This tool is intended for information purposes only; no data or results from this tool will be submitted to USAC.

For an accurate result, include the entity numbers for all the schools in your school district.

  • Add charter school entity numbers if those schools are part of the school district
  • Remove entity numbers for non-instructional facilities (even those with classrooms), including administration buildings
  • For a single school with multiple locations, remove all entity numbers but that of the main school.

Enter one of more entity numbers, separated by commas, to see the individual and aggregate Urban/Rural status.

For an accurate result, include the entity numbers for all the libraries in your library system. Remove the entity numbers of non-instructional facilities, e.g., library administration buildings, bookmobile garages, interlibrary loan facilities, and library technology centers.

Enter one of more entity numbers, separated by commas, to see the individual and aggregate Urban/Rural status.
