Rural Health Care

Application Status rss-feed

The form status report is generated once each week and reflects the status of each form on the date the report was generated. If you mailed an FCC Form 466 to the Rural Health Care Program (RHC) after the report was generated (which appears in the report header), it will not appear on the report until the following week.

Please note: Beginning with FY2012, "packets" will be referred to as "forms" and "Packet Status Reports" will be referred to as "Status Reports."

Archived Status Reports

If you mailed a form to USAC more than 10 days before the latest status report was posted, your form status does not appear on the report, and you have not been contacted by RHC, please contact the RHC Help Desk via email or at (800) 453-1546 for assistance.
