Download as PDF 50486 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 162 / Tuesday, August 21, 2012 / Notices F. NTIA Consultations With FirstNet on the State and Local Implementation Grant Program Requirements As previously discussed, the Act directs NTIA to consult with FirstNet to establish the requirements of the State and Local Implementation Grant Program not later than 6 months after the date of the Act’s enactment, or by August 22, 2012. The Act also required that FirstNet be established no later than August 20, 2012. The Act’s framework, which essentially placed the creation of FirstNet and the development of the grant program requirements on parallel tracks, proved challenging for NTIA as it attempted to fulfill the statutory mandate to consult with FirstNet in establishing the State and Local Implementation Grant Program. As noted, NTIA has only started to consult with the newly-formed FirstNet Board on the grant program requirements outlined in this Notice. NTIA expects these consultations to proceed over the next few months as NTIA continues to prepare the FFO in which the State and Local Implementation Grant Program requirements will be described more fully. Dated: August 16, 2012. Lawrence E. Strickling, Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information.
