The Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB or Bureau) of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) has issued a Public Notice establishing July 31, 2022, as the deadline for Round 2 COVID-19 Telehealth Program (COVID-19 Program) funding recipients to purchase eligible devices and implement eligible services.  The FCC issued funding awards for 447 applications between August 26, 2021 and January 26, 2022, awarding over $256 million in funding.  WCB is following the precedent from Round 1 in giving awardees about six months from notice of their awards to complete purchases and service implementation.  The Bureau, however, does encourage funding recipients to purchase eligible devices and implement eligible services lists as soon as practicable.
