NTIA Starts Scheduling Broadband Grant Meetings

Companies that want federal grants for building broadband networks can schedule meetings with the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA) as of March 2.

The NTIA is doling out $4.7 billion from the broadband portion of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The Agriculture Department’s Rural Utilities Service will oversee administration of the remainder of the $7.2 billion total.

The meetings will stretch over a period of days, until NTIA officials determine there’s been enough discussion. The substance of all of the talks will become public record.
