FCC Rule Changes May End Funding for Community Media!

We Need Your Help

The Federal Communications Commission is considering rule changes that would allow cable operators to treat funding for cable-related costs as “in-kind” donations. This means they would deduct an undefined amount from monies that traditionally have gone to community media.

MassAccess has hired the Cohen Law Group to help us file opposition to the proposed rule-making. Read our official filing HERE.

We Need the FCC to Recognize the Value of Community Media

The initial filing period has ended, but you can still file reply comments. This means that you can submit your comments in support of or against any comments which have already been filed. If you’d like a template letter, download it HERE.

No Amount is Too Small

Besides filing, please consider making a donation to MassAccess’ legal fund. This unforeseen but critical process may well decide the future of community media not only in Massachusetts, but across the country. Please consider a donation, no matter how small.


Donors to the MassAccess Legal Fund will be considered STAR SPONSORS with recognition on the Wall of Stars at the 2019 Mass Creator Awards!

THANK YOU to all who have donated!
