NTIA is hosting a webinar which will highlight tribal projects created by our BTOP grantees. These highlighted broadband projects are from tribes located in California, Colorado, New Mexico, Wisconsin and the Pacific North West. Topics that will be featured include: 1) Tele-heath experience in tribal clinics; 2) Uses of broadband in tribal libraries, cultural centers, and colleges; 3) Cost savings though broadband applications for tribal courts; and 4) Planning for and using broadband availability as a stimulus for economic development.   Dee Alexander, Program Analyst at Census and Jean Rice, Federal Program Officer, will co-facilitate the webinar.  Grantees are especially encouraged to invite tribes that are or could be impacted by their projects to attend the workshop to learn more about how they can leverage the availability of broadband through last mile or middle mile connections. Please contact Jean Rice (jrice at ntia.doc.gov<mailto:jrice at ntia.doc.gov>) with any questions.
