On June 8, 2022, the Media Bureau released a Public Notice reminding all low power TV and TV translator (LPTV/translator) stations, multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs), and FM stations that they must submit all remaining invoices in the TV Broadcaster Relocation Fund no later than September 6, 2022. The Bureau notes that entities have had two years notice of the deadline, and expressly stated that “extensions of the assigned invoice submission deadlines should therefore not be required.”
The Fund Administrator will initiate close out for any entity that fails to initiate the process by the deadline and any unused allocations will be returned to the Fund and made available for allocation to other program participants. Documents must be retained for 10 years after the date that they receive their final payment from the Reimbursement Fund, and entities are reminded that they may be selected for audit, data validations, and site visits, during the repack and reimbursement process, during the close-out period, or at a time thereafter.
