ADS assists eligible applicants in California (including public and non-profit K-12 schools as well as libraries) to participate with CTF by submitting a CTF application to the CPUC.
The CPUC reviews the application and sends the organization an Approval, Rejection or Deficiency Notification.
When approved, ADS informs the applicant's CTF participating service provider of discount eligibility by providing a copy of the Approval Notification. The service provider applies discount on the monthly recurring charges, excluding usage fees, of eligible services.
After providing the discount, the service provider files claims for reimbursement with the CPUC to recoup the discounted amounts and the CPUC reviews the claims for reimbursement, and issues the appropriate payments to the service provider.
