COALITION COMMENTARY
A big thanks to the FCC for extending the filing deadline for relocation funding. It could assist many of the 1500+ eligible LPTV and TV translator licensees complete their funding requests in a more timely manner.

The initial 60-day deadline was proving to be too quick a process, with many consulting engineers, legal counsel, and equipment vendors not having enough time to assist all that needed help in this unique process. 

With an extra 30-days to file a much broader participation rate of those which are eligible should lead to a much better outcome for the industry. 

And since the LPTV and TV translator reimbursement process is not tied to the incentive auction timeline, this extension will not affect that timeline at all.

THE FCC ASKED US TO REMIND YOU TO FILE EARLY, AS THE PROCESS TAKES TIME, AND TO AVOID THE RUSH AT THE END.  THIS IS A NEW HARD DEADLINE, SO GET THOSE APPLICATIONS DONE ASAP!  IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE, CHECK OUT THE COMPANIES BELOW WHICH CAN ASSIST YOU!
