NOFO FOMO? Unpacking NTIA’s $42 billion Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment Notice
May 31, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The NTIA has released its Notice of Funding Opportunities (NOFO), which specifies how the $42.25 billion of BEAD funds will be allocated to the states, what types of services will be eligible to receive subsidies, and how the states should go about distributing funds. The rules laid out in the 98-page document will have large and lasting effects on broadband deployment and on how the federal and state governments will interact with broadband providers. This panel of experts discussed the ins and outs of the NOFO and what it means for the BEAD funding applications from the 50 states and 6 eligible entities.
