What is an RNL and what is a “Notification of Form 470 posted”?
A Form 470 Receipt Notification Letter (RNL), also described as a “Notification of Form 470 posted letter”, is mailed to the E-Rate applicant by the SLD once a Form 470 has been posted. The letter and attached report provides a way for applicants to make certain corrections to a Form 470 for allowable fields.
If corrections cannot be made and time permits, the applicant may post another Form 470 to request services. The letter is normally received by E-Rate applicants within one week after posting the Form 470. Applicants should immediately check the letter and attached report for accuracy and clerical errors. A sample RNL is available on the USAC website.« Back to FAQs
