The less publicized, and imperative part of the E-rate funding process is upon us. The program’s request applications (470/471) get most of the attention because they are more detailed and longer. However, you won’t get any money (and really isn’t that the point of all this work) unless you complete the 486 form to confirm your services and the 472/BEAR form to collect your funds. Many districts do all the work up front and then forget the follow through. This webinar will focus on the importance of these forms, will walk through the information needed to complete them and easy to use search tools to confirm that you have done everything you need to in order to get your money.
