Program Press Release

White House American Jobs Plan Fact Sheet
 
BroadbandUSA is a program that is housed within the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. Over the last few years, broadband has become a necessary part of common life as it is needed for work, education, public safety, and healthcare. Expanding broadband coverage to all communities is an essential element in promoting a community's economic growth.

The TBCP would promote digital inclusion by serving tribal nations that desire to expand their broadband connectivity. BroadbandUSA promotes planning and funding efforts through solution-neutral guides and resources, hosting local and regional planning workshops that offer opportunities to convene with broadband stakeholders across the country, the National Broadband Availability Map (NBAM), and promoting interagency coordination. 

For more information on the TBCP, including the Notice of Funding Opportunity, FAQ documents, and recordings of previous webinars, please visit NTIA’s BroadbandUSA website
