From BroadbandCensus.com Weekly Report
WASHINGTON, May 25, 2009 – By June 30, the NTIA intends to hire an outside contractor to help administer its broadband grants program, release rules for $4.7 billion in grants, and issue two separate notices of funds availability.
Those details emerged from the quarterly report to Congress, dated May 18, that the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration released on either May 21 or May 22.
NTIA also said that it “anticipates making grant awards beginning in the final quarter of the calendar year 2009,” or potentially as soon as October 1. That date differed from what the White House’s recovery.gov web site said.
