NTIA Broadband Briefing

Communications Tower

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) will give an overview about and discuss the various broadband programs and funding included in the recently enacted Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The focal point of the briefing is the Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment Program, which allocates $42.5 billion in funding to be distributed directly to the states. States will competitively award these funds as grants for broadband infrastructure, mapping and deployment. NTIA will give an overview of the broadband programs and then the briefing will open up for discussion and Q&A. NTIA wants to receive feedback directly from state legislators on how they can make the program the most efficient and impactful for states and citizens.
