Sept. 1 Review Deadline Approaching
As part of the FCC’s 7th Report & Order the FCC set a target goal of September 1st for USAC to issue funding decisions for all “workable” funding requests. The FCC has yet to reach this goal and as of August 14, 2018, the SLD has $1.07 billion that needs to be reviewed for FY2018. This impacts 2,347 applicants and 1,488 service providers.
The following two charts illustrate the pending dollar amount and the percentage of the overall dollar amount requested, by type of service.
The table provides the total requested, funded, denied and pending amounts as of August 14, 2018.
