2017 E-rate Applicant Survey
Your feedback is important. Please take the survey today! It is available here.
How important is E-rate funding to your organization? What was your experience dealing with the EPC system? This is your chance to provide input to the FCC without having to prepare a formal letter.
Individual responses are confidential and kept anonymous. After the survey closes, we will submit the results to the FCC and share them with the public. By sharing your views you can help improve the application process. It is your personal feedback that will make the difference. To learn more about the 2017 Applicant Survey, please watch our video.
Where do I take the survey?
The survey is online at this address: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/e-rate2017
Why should I take the time?
Without your direct input, policy makers must guess what you think is working and what could be improved. It’s better to let them know your thoughts. Plus, taking the survey is much quicker than preparing your own formal filing to the FCC.
What difference does it make?
The FCC has made it clear that improvements are needed. Your opinion can influence the changes coming in FY2018 and beyond.
Who reads the survey results?
The survey data is compiled and submitted into the official docket for review by FCC staff; it is also circulated to Congressional offices and to the media; and, of course, it is shared with the general public. You can view results from last year's survey here.
How do I know my responses are confidential?
This is our 7th national survey of E-rate applicants. Individual results have never been shared with USAC or the FCC, and the data is only used for research and analysis.
Who should take the survey?
The survey is intended for E-rate applicants. Please spread the word. The more applicants who participate, the greater the impact of the survey. Last year, more than 1,000 applicants shared their opinions.
