E-Rate Strategies is pleased to announce that over 50% of our clients had 2011 applications funded in WAVE 1. Keep in mind that once your district, school or library is funded there are several important documents that need to be in place before you file your Form 486 to accept any funding. For FY 2011, they are as follows:
1. Have your Technology Plan approval letter on file –> for 2011, Priority 2 applications only
2. Collect and file documents supporting CIPA compliance
3. Complete and file a Form 479
4. Submit a Form 486 to accept funding
Be sure to follow the guidelines for each form… and keep track of the deadlines for each step.
