The FCC hosted an informational webinar on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, on the Affordable Connectivity (ACP) Outreach Grant Program, Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) Round 2. The ACP Outreach Grant Program seeks to enlist trusted community messengers to develop innovative outreach strategies to reach qualifying, low-income households living on Tribal lands, to increase awareness of and encourage participation in the ACP.
The Tribal webinar took place on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, from 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. ET and provided a detailed overview of the second NOFO (Round 2) that includes the National Competitive Outreach Program (NCOP) and the Tribal Competitive Outreach Program (TCOP), including eligibility, how to navigate the application process, and what to expect after submitting an application.
This event was free and registration was open to the public.
ACP is a $14.2 billion FCC affordability program that helps qualifying low-income households pay for the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more.
