StimulatingBroadband has the scoop for anyone anxiously waiting for word on their ARRA broadband application:
The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce is now in the process of sending out an estimated 1,400 rejection letters to applicants that applied for Round I funding under the federal broadband stimulus program.
The timing is good for anyone who was thinking about applying for Round Two funding and wondering where they stood on Round One. I don’t know what it means if you don’t get a letter. I still haven’t heard from a ton of people who have. I guess that means that you’re still in the hopper, which is good. But it makes the decision regarding a Round Two application a lot tougher.
Good luck to everyone!
