NTIA and RUS Begin Broadband Grant Workshops

This week, the Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Service (RUS) began a series of public workshops about the application process for $4 billion in broadband grants and loans under the federal stimulus bill.

The application procedures were released in hard copy format at the first of these workshops, held in Washington, D.C. on July 7. The on-line versions will be available soon and Connected Nation will provide more information once they are released.
