The FCC Form 471 application filing window for Funding Year 2015 will open at noon EST on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 and will close at 11:59 PM EDT on Thursday, March 26, 2015. The filing window will be open for 72 days.
Be sure to review the FY2015 Eligible Services List for details on products and services that are eligible for E-rate discounts in FY2015.
Meanwhile, keep the following in mind:
- Applicants can file an FCC Form 470 now; they don't need to wait for the window to open.
- The applicant must wait 28 days after the FCC Form 470 is POSTED to the USAC website before they can select a service provider, sign a contract (if applicable), and submit an FCC Form 471. If an RFP is issued after the FCC Form 470 is posted, the applicant must wait 28 days from the release of the RFP to select a service provider.
- Thursday, February 26, 2015 is the last day to post an FCC Form 470 to the USAC website or issue an RFP and still complete all of these actions before the window closes.
You can find additional program guidance documents in the Reference Area of the USAC website.
