Guide to Filing Category 1 Funding Requests

March 20, 2015

Just as with Category 2 applications, one of the most challenging parts of the new Form 471 is the Funding Request Section.  To help explain this FRN Section, I’ve created the attached Guide to Filing Category 1 Funding Requests that provides a screen-by-screen walk-through, explaining what to select in each screen, for each item.

I hope you find this a helpful resource!  If you’re looking for other resources, please see the Helpful Documents Section in the PA E-rate website at:

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
