WASHINGTON, July 27, 2009 – The National Telecommunication and Information Administration views the $240 million that it is awarding in broadband data and mapping grants as a responsibility of state governments, and expects them to be integrally involved in the process.
In fact, even when a state government selects an independent, non-profit entity to be its designee for the purposes of the grants, “we really want to see how the state continues its active role both in the mapping, and the planning grant,” said Anne Neville, an NTIA official on the broadband data program, speaking in a Friday webinar hosted by the agency.
“Given the inherently public policy nature of broadband planning, the states are absolutely the most appropriate entity to be involved,” added Edward “Smitty” Smith, program director of the State Broadband Data and Development Grant Program.
