The FCC extended the "gift rules waiver" through June 30, 2021.

The FCC stated, "In light of the ongoing disruptions caused by COVID-19 to program participants and the continued need for robust connectivity, we find good cause to extend our waivers of the RHC and E-Rate program gift rules through June 30, 2021, the end of funding year 2020.3 With our action, we continue to ensure that health care providers, schools, and libraries can benefit from and solicit offers for improved broadband connections or equipment for telehealth or remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic without running afoul of Commission rules."
