On September 15, 2017 the FCC announced that USAC will provide regulatory relief to school districts and public libraries affected by Hurricane’s Harvey and Irma. These applicants will have additional time to respond to a myriad of E-rate deadlines.
Specifically, those affected will have an additional 30 days to respond to the following:
  • Pending Program Integrity Assurance (PIA) questions about their FCC Forms 471 that are in the review process.
  • New Program Integrity Assurance (PIA) questions about their FCC Forms 471 that are in the review process.
  • Any other pending USAC requests for information and/or documentation, for example, for invoice review or FCC Form 486 review.
  • Any other new USAC requests for information and/or documentation, for example, for invoice review or FCC Form 486 review.
Further information on this E-rate regulatory relief can be found on the SLD website and affected applicants can call the Client Services Bureau for additional questions or issues at 888-203-8100.
