Get Ready: COVID-19 Telehealth Funding

The application filing window for Round 2 of the COVID-19 Telehealth Program (Program) will open at 12 p.m. ET on April 29, 2021, and close at 12 p.m. ET on May 6, 2021. Applicants may file applications once the application filing window opens, but applicants may not file applications after the close of the application filing window. Applications will be reviewed after the application filing window closes. Health care providers (HCPs) should take several steps now to prepare a successful application.

  1. Request an eligibility determination from USAC by filing an FCC Form 460
  2. Obtain an FCC Registration Number (FRN) and an FCC Commission Registration System (CORES) ID
  3. Register for a System for Awards Management (SAM) account
