Computers for Learning

The Department of Defense (DOD) Computers for Learning (CFL) program was created to provide useful IT equipment to schools and educational nonprofit organizations serving grades pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. The DOD CFL program is designed to streamline the transfer of excess and surplus DOD IT equipment to schools.
The application process is simple, just apply on-line and submit a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). In addition, non-profit educational entities must submit their Articles of Incorporation, Board of Directors, and IRS 501(c)(3) (tax-exempt notification letter).
All MOAs must be current (the person who signed the MOA must still be employed by the school) before any computer equipment can be received by the school under the DOD CFL Program.
