Funding Decisions

Applications will be assigned to reviewers who will review the information that is submitted to ensure compliance with the Emergency Connectivity Fund Program rules. In the event that the funding cap is reached, applications will follow the prioritization requirements set out in the Program rules. Applications submitted earlier in the application filing window will be assigned to a reviewer earlier, and will therefore have the possibility of being reviewed and processed earlier once the application filing window closes. We encourage potential participants to apply as early as possible.

In order to assess the demand for funds, USAC will wait until the application filing window is closed before issuing funding commitment decision notifications. When the application filing window is closed, USAC will release funding commitment decision letters to applicants who have been approved for funding.
