RDOF Short Form filing instructions

Application window:

July 1st – July 15th 2020
Deadline: 6pm EST, July 15th, 2020

The RDOF Short Form is your ticket to the auction, it tells the FCC you want to participate in the auction, but does not mean you have to bid. Providers must submit these on time and indicate which states they want to be allowed to bid in. You have a two week window from July 1st – July 15th to submit your Short Form application, also known as FCC Form 183. These are the same thing.

Applications are submitted at auctions.fcc.gov and are due by 6pm EST on July 15th. You’ll need to log into the auctions website with your FRN and password to complete the application. If you don’t have an FRN, you can obtain one by registering through the Commission Registration System (CORES).
