The Broadband Deployment Board (BDB) is excited to share the timeline of events for the remainder of 2022, including the completion of the Appeals and Right of First Refusal process for the Winter 2022 Grant Cycle, as well as a number of meetings and engagement opportunities. Please be advised that these dates are subject to change.
Broadband Fund staff and the BDB’s legal counsel are drafting recommendations for process improvements in preparation for the Winter 2023 Grant Cycle. The BDB will hold Subcommittee meetings and stakeholder meetings to help inform the BDB of potential process improvements through proposed modifications by both stakeholders and the Colorado Broadband Office (CBO).
- Subcommittee Meetings: Two BDB subcommittees will discuss process improvement recommendations and prepare feedback to share with the BDB.
- Stakeholder Meetings: engagement opportunities designed to gather input and feedback from any stakeholders of the BDB on how to make the grant process more successful.
The BDB will meet during the first week of December to discuss and vote on proposed changes.
Events and joining information will be updated on our website as the schedule below is finalized.
