Successful appeals tied were tied to:
  • Granting Additional Time to Respond to USAC's Request for Information
  • Grant on Reconsideration – Late-Filed FCC Form 471 Applications – Circumstances Beyond Applicants Control
  • Ministerial and/or Clerical Errors
  • Unable to Timely File Awaiting USAC Action
Denials were issued for appeals involving the following issues:
