E-Rate News

For K-12 Schools and Libraries

Have you created your user profile in USAC’s new system, EPC? You will want to include your bank information, as well. All BEAR forms are now handled directly through EPC. If you’d rather be reimbursed via the SPI method, please notify Kim Taylor as soon as possible. Please email Kim Taylor at kim.taylor@cinbell.com if you have not done so already. 

For more information on E-Rate funding, contact the School & Libraries Division (SLD) at www.sl.universalservice.org or 888.203.8100 Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. EST. All calls are tracked as cases, and USAC will communicate with you via that case, so please be prepared by having your user profile updated in EPC.
