FY2017 Form 486 Now Available
July 18, 2017

The FCC Form 486 for FY2017 FRNs is now available in the E-rate Productivity Center (EPC). You file this form after you receive a Funding Commitment Decision Letter (FCDL) to notify USAC that services have started. As you fill out your Form 486, do not check every box on the form! Canceling an incorrect Form 486 is no longer an option and many applicants had to wait several months for USAC to review and correct their inaccurate FY2016 Form 486.

The due date for the FCC Form 486 is 120 days after your FCDL or 120 days after your service start date, whichever is later. Although it is always best to file your form on time, if you do miss the deadline, you should receive a notification granting you an additional 15-day grace period. This notification will come through EPC as well as an email to your Form 471 contact person.

Here is a step-by-step guide >>> How to Complete an FCC Form 486. For more assistance, review the FCC Form 486 filing tips in USAC’s News Brief. Please let us know if you have any questions by emailing

Thank you.
