Community Broadband Visioning Sessions
The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) is an agency of the United States Department of Commerce responsible for overseeing the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program, which provides $42.45 billion to expand high-speed internet access across the country.
The Program requires Indiana to submit:
- A Five-Year Plan detailing the current state of broadband in Indiana,
- The State’s vision of broadband, and
- How the State plans to execute this vision.
Indiana is diverse in many ways, and every community has distinct needs. The purpose of these sessions is to engage with community and broadband stakeholders to adequately understand and address the barriers to broadband deployment and unique community challenges.
1. Discuss the broadband efforts ongoing in the State and upcoming opportunities.
2. Receive feedback from stakeholders on broadband barriers and limitations in their communities.
3. Envision the future state of broadband in the area and how the State and communities can collaborate to move broadband forward.
