As part of the BEAD process the CBO requested public comment on both Initial Proposal Volume 1 and Initial Proposal Volume 2 before submission to the NTIA. The public comment period was held to promote transparency and gather feedback from all of CBO’s stakeholders. As part of our commitment to transparency, the CBO is releasing a summary of feedback received for both volumes.
Future actions include collaborating with the NTIA to obtain approval for Volume 2, and concurrently, crafting the project area map and grant guidelines. The CBO will make these guidelines available for public comment as part of the ongoing process.
