The project will create and staff a state broadband technology office responsible for fostering relationships with state and local agencies, and organizing teams of agencies, businesses and other organizations that will work cooperatively to plan and identify funding for programs that accelerate broadband adoption, digital literacy, and computer ownership.
Data Collection, Integration, and Validation:
This project was originally funded for broadband planning activities and two years of data collection. In September of 2010, this project was amended to extend data collection activities for an additional three years and to identify and implement best practices.
