National Telecommunications and Information Administration July 18, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Repeal of Regulations Governing the Public Telecommunications Facilities Program
Document Number: 2017-14978
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-07-18
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) issues this NPRM to propose the repeal of its regulations governing the Public Telecommunications Facilities Program (PTFP). The PTFP is a competitive grant program that helps public broadcasting stations, state and local governments, Indian Tribes, and nonprofit organizations to construct public television and radio stations. As of Fiscal Year 2011, no funds have been available for PTFP grants. NTIA is proposing to repeal its regulations governing the PTFP because the regulations are unnecessary and obsolete.
