FCC Form 471 Funding Request Bulk Upload Templates Available

E-rate program applicants with large numbers of eligible services and/or large numbers of recipients of service now have the ability to prepare and upload funding request data outside of the E-rate Productivity Center (EPC).

We have five downloadable templates:

  • Category One - Voice Services
  • Category One - Data Transmission and/or Internet Access
  • Category Two - Internal Connections
  • Category Two - Managed Internal Broadband Services (MIBS)
  • Category Two - Basic Maintenance of Internal Connections

You can access the templates in either of two ways:

  1. Download them from the FY2016 FCC Form 471 Filing Window page on the USAC website.
  2. Access them in the Funding Request section of the FCC Form 471. To do this, you must first complete the Basic Information and Entity Information sections of the form and then start a funding request.

You can also find some quick tips and detailed instructions for all five templates on the FY2016 FCC Form 471 Filing Window page.
