WCB Waives RHC Program Filing Deadline


The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC or Commission) Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB or Bureau) has waived the Rural Health Care (RHC) Program’s Healthcare Connect Fund Program invoice filing deadline to provide relief to applicants and service providers who received funding year (FY) 2019 funding commitment letters (FCLs) after or within 180 days of the filing deadline. The Healthcare Connect Fund Program provides support to eligible health care providers for advanced telecommunications services and network equipment necessary for the provision of health care services. Entities under the program are allowed to submit invoices to the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) within 180 days from the later of the release date of this Order or the issuance of an FCL by USAC.
