ECF Sunset Reminder from FCC

On June 28, 2024, the FCC released a public notice reminding applicants that June 30, 2024 is the sunset date for the Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) program.

Some key points from the public notice include:

  • Program Sunset: The Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) program ends on June 30, 2024. All purchases must be made by this date to be eligible for reimbursement.
  • Invoicing Deadline: For services delivered by June 30, 2024, the invoicing deadline is August 29, 2024. No waivers for late submissions are expected.
  • De-obligation Process: Unused funds will be de-obligated after the invoicing deadline due to Congressional funding rescission.
  • Post-Commitment Requests: Applicants are encouraged to file post-commitment requests to reduce or cancel unused funding to help manage invoice volume and fund returns.
