Following the announcement earlier this week of the latest round of the
Telecommunications and Information Infrastructure Assistance Program
(TIIAP) grants, the Dept. of Commerce has released a list of its
application workshops to be held between February 14 and March 6 in
Alexandria, VA, Nashua, NH, Chicago, IL, New Orleans and Phoenix, AZ


NTIA announces a series of regional Outreach Workshops on the 1997
TIIAP Grant Round. The following is information on the Workshops. Call

registration is available on NTIA's web site: http://www.ntia.doc.gov

The Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and
Information Administration (NTIA) announced the 1997
Telecommunications and Information Infrastructure Assistance Program
(TIIAP) grant competition in the Federal Register on January 27, 1997.
TIIAP is a highly competitive, merit-based grant program that provides
assistance to public and nonprofit sector organizations with creative
approaches to applying information and telecommunications technologies
to solve community problems and meet community needs. NTIA received
a $21.49 million appropriation for the 1997 TIIAP program. The deadline
for submitting applications is March 27, 1997.

TIIAP has organized a series of Outreach Workshops to discuss the
TIIAP program, introduce the 1997 TIIAP grant round and discuss
program funding priorities and application requirements, as well as afford
an opportunity to meet TIIAP Program Officers and potential TIIAP
applicants in your region of the country. In addition, recipients of
previous TIIAP grants will speak at the Workshops to offer insights into
developing a successful TIIAP proposal. The afternoon sessions will be
devoted to breakout sessions that expand on topics introduced during
the morning session.

This is a key opportunity for interested parties to understand the TIIAP
goals and process and meet representatives of other organizations
interested in the TIIAP program. The information you find at the
Workshops and the relationships you form can help you build critical
alliances, explore new programs, and plan your technology strategy. The
Outreach Workshops will be held on:

Friday, February 14, Alexandria, Virginia, Crystal Gateway Marriott,
(703) 920-3230 or (800)228-9290

Wednesday, February 19, Nashua, New Hampshire, Sheraton Tara
