High Cost Funds are split into five components: High Cost Loop (HCL), High Cost Model (HCM), Interstate Access Support (IAS), Interstate Common Line Support (ICLS), and Local Switching Support (LSS). These charts exclude the High Cost Loop sub-components, Safety Net Additive (SNA) and Safety Valve Support (SVS), since they are included in the HCL data. Connect America Funds are split into six components: Frozen High Cost Support (FHCS), Incremental Support (IS), Connect America Fund Intercarrier Compensation (ICC), Mobility Fund Phase One (Mobility I), Connect America Cost Model (CACM), and Rural Broadband Experiments Fund (RBE). In 2011, the FCC rolled out the Connect America Fund with Phase I in 2012 and Phase II in 2014. FCC issued a report and order in 2014 to reform the High Cost Program. Connect America Funds are part of the High Cost Program. Data is gathered from USAC's Funding Disbursement Search tool http://www.usac.org/hc/tools/disbursements/default.aspx.
