What Happens After BEAD Funds Are Awarded?

August 6 – 4:30 pm to 5:15 pm

While many are focused now on state competitive grant processes, awarding BEAD funds to sub-grantees is not the end of the road – it’s just the initial milestone in a longer journey. It’s time for state broadband offices to consider how they will monitor performance post-award and for potential awardees to understand the semi-annual reporting they will be required to do. This panel will discuss lessons learned from past funding programs, and how post-award oversight is critical to ensuring that BEAD accomplishes its mission to bring internet to all.
