§ 54.620 Annual filing requirements and commitments.
(a) Annual filing requirement. Health care providers seeking support
under the RHC Program shall file new funding requests for each funding
year consistent with the filing periods established under this subpart,
except for health care providers who have received a multi-year funding
commitment in this section.
(b) Long-term contracts. If health care providers enter into long-term
contracts for eligible services, the Administrator shall only commit
funds to cover the portion of such a long-term contract scheduled to be
delivered during the funding year for which universal service support
is sought, except for multi-year funding commitments as described in
(c) Multi-year commitments under the Healthcare Connect Fund Program.
Participants in the Healthcare Connect Fund Program are permitted to
enter into multi-year contracts for eligible expenses and may receive
funding commitments from the Administrator for a period that covers up
to three years of funding. If a long-term contract covers a period of
more than three years, the applicant may also have the contract
designated as “evergreen” under § 54.622(i)(3), which will allow the
applicant to re-apply for funding under the contract after three years
without having to undergo additional competitive bidding.
