FCC Uncovers New Funding For Universal Service Program

WASHINGTON, July 7, 2010 – Last week, the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) released a budget projecting that $900 million in unused administrative costs would be extended to schools and libraries, pursuant to the FCC’s Universal Service Program. The unused funding comes from FCC budget surpluses in the years 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. The FCC will extend the funds irrespective of the annual cap, pursuant to Section 54.507(a)(2) of the Commission’s rules, which states states, in part, that “all funds that are collected and that are unused from prior years shall be available for use in the next full funding year of the schools and libraries mechanism in accordance with the public interest and notwithstanding the annual cap.”
