Step 9 Submit Annual Report

The consortium leader must submit an annual report to USAC, which will include information that allows the FCC to assess progress towards the performance goals and measures of the Healthcare Connect Fund (HCF) Program. The consortium leader must file the annual report on or before September 30 for the preceding funding year.

FY2018 Annual Reporting Requirement

For Funding Year (FY) 2018, to supplement the information collected from forms filed by consortia, the FCC requires HCF consortia who received funding in FY2018 (July 1 2018 – June 30, 2019) to submit information to USAC about the telehealth applications used during the funding year.

How to Submit the FY2018 Annual Report Questionnaire

  1. Open the HCF Program annual report template.
  2. In the “Telehealth Services” tab, review the telehealth applications in column A and use the dropdown menu in column B to select “Yes” for each telehealth application for which the consortium received funding in FY2018.
  3. Save the template with a file name that includes the consortium name and HCP number.
  4. Email the completed template to RHC-assist@usac.org by September 30, 2019.

Failure to submit the required annual report(s) by the deadline may result in the denial of program funding.
