State and Local Implementation Grant Program (SLIGP) Services
Take Action Now to Prepare for the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network
Congress has authorized up to $7 billion in funding to construct the nationwide public safety broadband network (NPSBN). With over 50 states and territories, and more than 20,000 municipal governments, the competition for this funding and construction of the NPSBN will be strong. That is why public safety entities need to begin planning now to assure that the network meets their unique user requirements.
Building the NPSBN will be a complex endeavor. Therefore, it is important for states and localities to have access to the impartial and professional advice of industry specialists who have already conducted similar programs and have the direct background to ensure the solution meets your agency requirements. Televate’s experts have the essential skills necessary to determine the best options available to your agency in securing public safety broadband.
Televate recommends that every state, tribe, locality, federal agency, and region across the country immediately engage in NPSBN planning and preparation efforts. The nationwide network will only be a success if fully utilized by public safety. Planning and ongoing collaboration with FirstNet will be critical to assure success.
The law also establishes a $135 million State and Local Planning Implementation Grant Program (SLIGP) administered by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). Televate's experts can help your agency derive the most benefit from this funding with:
