Funding Distribution

The RHC Program has a cap for eligible health care providers and administrative expenses which is set by the FCC and was recently changed through an Order. After USAC deducts annual administrative expenses, representing the amount necessary for USAC to administer the RHC Program, the remaining amount is what is available for funding program requests.

Of this remaining amount, up to $150 million per funding year is available to support upfront payments and multi-year commitments under the HCF Program.

For FY2017, USAC is reporting “Total Funding Requests Received,” and “Total Net Demand.” “Total Funding Requests Received” reflects the original total funding amount as requested by applicants, and “Total Net Demand” describes the total funding after USAC’s review. USAC received a total of 16,081 funding requests during the FY2017 filing window period.
