Funds for DTV Coupons Gone

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) - The federal government has run out of money to help people purchase digital converter boxes for their televisions.
The government had been mailing out 40 dollar vouchers to help people purchase the boxes, which run between $40 and $80.
Because so many people have requested the coupons, the government has run out of money to cover the vouchers.
Anyone who applied after January 4th will be put on a waiting list until more funds become available.
