Yesterday, USAC released the first Wave of Funding Commitment Decision Letters (FCDLs) for E-rate Funding Year 2016. Congratulations to all Nebraska schools and libraries funded in Wave 1!
Your FCDL will now appear in your EPC account. You will receive an email notifying you that the FCDL has been issued, and then you will need to log into your EPC account to view it. Information and instructions about how to do that are in the June 3 News Brief.
After you receive your FCDL, you can go on to the next step in the E-rate process, filing your Form 486. This form is also submitted in your EPC account. Information and instructions on how to do that can be found in the June 10 News Brief.
If you are not in Wave 1, don’t panic! There are many more weekly Waves to come as USAC processes more applications. This is just the start of Funding Year 2016, more approvals are coming.
