For the first time since 1998, and only the second time in the history of the E-Rate program, P2 services will be funded at all discount levels for FY 2010.  The FCC issued this order August 22nd in a special bulletin delivered by USAC today.

Applications for E-Rate funding can include two categories of services: P1 (telecommunitcations services and internet access) and P2 (internal connections and basic maintenance).  Historically, P2 funding does not reach much bel0w 80%.

Applicants need take no action.  USAC will contact the authorized person on the P2 FY 2010 applicaton.
