On April 23, 2012, the USAC Schools and Libraries Committee approved the SLD’s recommendation to begin making funding commitments for FY 2011 Priority Two applications at the 89% discount level. The decision positively impacts 77 applicants, totaling $103.2 million. The FCC must approve USAC’s recommendation before commitments may be issued, a process which generally takes two to three weeks.
The Committee also approved the SLD’s recommendation to deny FY 2011 Priority Two applications at 80% and below. Previously, denials for FY 2011 P2 applications were set at 79% and below. The decision not to fund FY 2011 P2 requests at the 80% level affects 1,355 applicants, for a total of $336.4 million.
