We are currently in E-rate FY23 (unlinke the State of Alaska which calls this same time period FY24) This current E-rate year runs July 1, 2023 through June 30, 2024.

This is a good time to check and be sure that your invoicing for FY22 for Category 2 has been done. Keep an eye on your last date to submit invoicing, it is a good idea to do it as soon as the equipment arrives! If you think you can not make that deadline, please request an invoice deadline extension prior to this deadline.
