2015 E-rate Application Process Status Check

February 24, 2015

Funding Year 2015 is an E-rate year unlike any other that I can remember except perhaps the first year of the program.  In many ways, I feel like we are ALL rookies, navigating the new rules, new eligible services, new discount calculations, and the new forms!   Status Check:  There are 30 days, 12 hours and six minutes left in the FY 2015 E-rate Application Window and so the mad dash to the finish line has begun.  So far, 193 Form 471s have been submitted by 131 different schools and libraries (of those, 28 are for Category 2 equipment/services).  This Thursday (February 26) is the final day to post a Form 470 for Funding Year 2015, so if you haven’t yet filed your 470, please do so today!

Over the next several days/weeks, I’ll be sending out a series of FAQs based on all of the questions you’ve been sending me, broken down into various topics so they will be easy to reference later.  Please continue to e-mail me with your questions!  I love answering them!
