The funds we administer exist to fill these gaps in access.

Working in a creative and fast-paced environment, the Assistant Program Analyst will analyze data and make program recommendations, to include funding and other mission-critical decisions, for one of USAC’s four core programs. Assistant Program Analysts will be key contributors to the program by, among other areas of work, identifying process improvements and efficiencies, reviewing/processing eligibility requests, requests for services, funding requests, and invoices, and ensuring compliance with all applicable rules and regulations. Specifically in this role, you will support the Rural Health Care Program.
