Public Telecommunications Facilities Program
This program of the Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) assists, through matching grants, in the planning and construction of public telecommunications facilities. The program has a Distance Learning category open to public school systems. Last year, NTIA awarded nearly $4 million to 12 distance learning projects. Winners included St. Clair County Intermediate School District in Michigan, which was given $430,000 to purchase equipment for video classrooms in 11 schools, a vocational education center, and a local community college.
