On October 6, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued an order to assist Universal Service Fund (USF) participants who have been affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
The order waives certain rules and deadlines for E-rate, Rural Health Care (RHC), and Lifeline and USF contributors located in affected areas.

USAC analysts routinely will review submitted FCC Forms 499 to ensure that revenues are reported accurately. On occasion, they have questions regarding revenues reported on these forms. Issue emails will be sent, and the Form 499 status will be changed to ‘Issue-Carrier Response Required’.
E-File users can now view all issue emails sent from E-File, online.
In the past, users only had the option of searching through their emails to find these issue notifications. With this new feature, E-file users can now find the emails by using this search feature in E-File.
