TOP, a program of the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, is a highly competitive, merit-based matching grant program that promotes the use of advanced telecommunications and information technologies in the nonprofit and public sectors. TOP provides organizations with the opportunity to explore the possibilities that new interactive technologies offer to improve the provision of educational, health care, or public information. These projects encourage the deployment of broadband infrastructure, services, and applications throughout the nation. TOP will hold Technical Assistance Workshops for applicants in Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles in March. Check the program’s web site for more details.
