FirstNet and What it Means for Local Communities
Feb. 22, 10–11 a.m. Pacific Time
FirstNet was established by The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 to construct, operate and maintain a nationwide wireless broadband network that will enable first responders to better communicate with each other during emergencies and help save lives.
NTIA has also announced the availability of $121.5 million in grants to help states plan and prepare for the establishment of the nationwide wireless broadband network for public safety.
The webinar will provide members with an overview of State and Local Implementation Grant Program, details about the state application process and information about how local elected officials should be engaging with their state governments to plan and prepare for the development of a nationwide public safety broadband network.
For questions about the webinar, FirstNet or NLC’s work on technology and communications, please contact, Julia Pulidindi at (202) 626-3176.
