  • The US Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Services (RUS) and the US Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) recently announced that they planned to streamline the broadband grant and loan programs provided for in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). Rather than having two additional funding rounds, RUS and NTIA plan to dispense the remaining funds in one round to increase efficiency and improve assistance to applicants. www.arnoldporter.com
