Publication 417, Nonprofit USPS Marketing Mail Eligibility: Nonprofit and Other Qualified Organizations > 3 Application for Authorization > 3-1 Original Mailing Office > 3-1.7 Appealing Denied Application
The PCSC will provide the organization with written notification if the organization is found ineligible for the nonprofit prices. The organization may file a written appeal of the denial within 15 days. Submit the appeal to the postmaster at the Post Office where the application was filed. The postmaster then will forward the appeal with the supporting documentation to the PCSC.
The appeal letter should include, or have attached, any new evidence or arguments on which the organization is basing the appeal. You may, for example, include further proof of the organization’s nonprofit status or a more comprehensive description of the organization’s activities during the past 12 months, if these were factors in the PCSC’s decision to deny the application.
After reviewing any additional information, the PCSC may reverse its decision and approve the application. If not, the appeal and supporting documentation will be sent to the manager of Mailing Standards at USPS Headquarters in Washington, DC, who will issue the final agency decision.
