NTIA may announce broadband stimulus winners by mid-September

The wait to see who will get money in the first round of the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA) broadband stimulus grants will soon be over as the agency said it plans to announce who received grants "no earlier" than Sept. 14. In addition, the NTIA has extended the deadline for applicants to submit supporting materials. Bids for this first slice of broadband funding were due Aug. 20, a date the NTIA pushed out from the initial deadline of Aug. 14. Article
