E-rate Funding Year 2017 Window Is Now Open

Dear Stakeholder:

USAC is pleased to announce that the application filing window for Funding Year (FY) 2017 opened today at noon and will close on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 11:59 PM EDT. You may now log on to the E-rate Productivity Center (EPC) and file your FCC Form 471 for FY2017.

If you have not yet started your competitive bidding process by certifying an FCC Form 470, be sure to start now. April 13, 2017 is the last day you can post an FCC Form 470 and still wait the required 28 days before selecting your service provider, signing a contract (if applicable), and certifying your FCC Form 471 on the last day of the window. If your FCC Form 471 is late, it is unlikely to be considered for funding.

Please note that Google Chrome is the preferred browser for EPC. No matter what browser you use, be sure the latest version is installed on your computer.  

As always, representatives at our Client Service Bureau (CSB) are available to help you at 888-203-8100, or you can simply open a customer service case in EPC.
