More on RHC

The Rural Health Care (RCH) Program works to increase connectivity to rural health facilities so they may deliver the best possible medical care to their communities. Between the two subgroups, the Healthcare Connect Fund (HCF) and the Telecommunications (Telecom) Programs, the RCH distributes up to $400 million annually in reduced rates for broadband and telecom services.

About USAC

The mission at the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) is to achieve universal service, where everyone in the US has accessible, affordable, and pervasive high-speed connectivity. While connectivity is prevalent in most urban areas, millions of people in the US cannot access broadband services for work, learning, healthcare, and communication. In addition to the RHC, USAC connects underserved areas through school and library, high cost, and lifeline programs.
