ECF Round 3 and Other Changes Proposed by SECA

On February 11, 2022, State E-rate Coordinators’ Alliance (SECA) filed an Ex Parte letter which supports the request submitted by SHLB and other stakeholder groups for relief from the June 30, 2022 service delivery deadline governing all FY2021 ECF funding requests. Also, SECA supports creating a third ECF filing window and offered specific actions on how to integrate the implementation of the FY2021 service delivery deadline extension and the acceptance of funding applications for FY2022. SECA encourage the FCC to allocate funding for broadband and internet recurring services and equipment first, and if remaining funds are still available, then fund connected devices and network build-out costs. SECA Noted that this approach will most efficiently utilize the limited remaining ECF funds.
