Presentation Summary It took a health pandemic to tell us what
It took a health pandemic to tell us what we many of us already knew: the government needs to invest billions into the U.S. tribal broadband infrastructure. Everywhere you look, there are new funding programs popping up: NTIA Tribal Connectivity, American Rescue Plan, USDA and US Infrastructure Plan are all promising billions of funding to be spent over the next several years. During this session, a panel of experts will help prepare you for what is to come as well as tell stories on ways these funds can be used.
