E-rate Form 471 Trainings Scheduled – Register Now

February 28, 2023

~ Reminder: Today is Final Day to Post Form 470’s ~

Congratulations to the 308 PA schools and libraries that have already submitted 488 Form 471 funding requests for FY 2023!  Of the applications submitted, more than 49% are in Wave Ready Status, which means they will most likely be funded in Wave 1.  If you haven’t yet submitted your Form 471, or need a refresher, please join me for Form 471 Training.  I have scheduled three trainings, with the first focusing on our smaller applicants that are using the CABIO bidding exemption.  The other two trainings will focus on all other application types and will begin with walking through how to create a Contract Record in EPC.  There will be plenty of time available to ask questions.  Registration is required.

Don’t forget, you must request your Category 1 E-rate funding every year, even if you’re in multi-year contract for a service.  If your procurements are complete and contracts signed, or if you are in a multi-year contract from a previous year, please don’t wait to file your Form 471s.
