FCC Rural Health Care Funding Carry Forward
The FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) has directed The Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) to carry-forward unused funds from prior funding years to the extent necessary to cover FY 2019 RHC Program demand as of the close of the FY 2019 filing window on June 30, 2019. USAC projects that, as of the third quarter of this calendar year, $83.22 million in unused funds is available for use in future funding years beginning in funding year (FY) 2019. The carry-forward was ordered in compliance with FCC rules under which funds from past funding years can be carried-forward for use in future funding years. The rules also direct the Bureau to announce a specific amount of unused funds from prior funding years to be carried forward to increase available funding for future funding years.
