Rural Health Care (RHC) Program funding requests reached a historic high of $377.64M in FY2015, and demand may exceed the $400M funding cap in FY2016 (July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017).

To fairly distribute future RHC Program funding, the FCC just announced two additional filing window periods for FY2016. The next filing window period is from September 1 – November 30, 2016. If funding remains, the third filing window period will be from February 1 – April 30, 2017.

Healthcare providers are strongly encouraged to submit their funding requests (i.e., FCC Forms 462 and 466) by November 30, 2016, the last day of the upcoming FY2016 filing window period.
