State and Local Implementation Grant Program to the Project Certification Committee Jacque Miller Mike Neitzey October 23, 2014
Status Summary SLIGP grant was submitted to NTIA in August 2013 in response to a FirstNet Round One Funding Notice. The grant money allows the State to conduct planning, education, and outreach activities related to being a part of the new network. The grant will cover a performance period of three years, and the State will be required to complete a number of steps related to planning for participation in the nationwide LTE network. Using funds from the Grant, the State will put a structure in place for FirstNet to communicate through a single point of contact and will then compile information that will allow the State to work effectively with the FirstNet Board.
