We expect the 1995 guidelines to be very similar to those issued last
year by NTIA. Key elements from LAST YEAR'S guidelines:


SIZE OF GRANTS:         $20,000-$500,000 (approximately)
DURATION:               12 to 18 months
GRANT CATEGORIES:       Planning projects
                        Demonstration/application projects
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Requires matching support (cash or in-kind services)
                        Emphasis on building partnerships among organizations
                        Emphasis on online electronic networks




Excerpts from LAST YEAR'S NTIA guidelines:


LAST YEAR'S NTIA SUMMARY: "... funds for planning and demonstration
projects to promote the goals of development and widespread availability
of advanced telecommunications technologies; to enhance the delivery of
social services and generally serve the public interest; to promote
access to government information and increase civic participation; and
to support the advancement of an advanced nationwide telecommunications
and information infrastructure."


LAST YEAR'S NTIA PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: "NTIA announces a competitive
grant program, the TIIAP (Telecommunications and Information
Infrastructure Assistance Program) initiative. Major goals of the NII
initiative include: the promotion of private sector investment through
appropriate tax and regulatory policies; the extension of universal
service so that information is available to all at affordable prices,
using the widest variety of appropriate technologies; the promotion of
technological innovation and new applications; wider access to
government information; and guarantees of information security and
network reliability..."


"Grants will be awarded after a competitive merit review process and
will be used to fund projects that connect communications networks and
systems that are already operational, establish new networked
capabilities, and permit users to interconnect on-line. Equally
important, they will help leverage the resources and creativity of the
private sector to devise new applications and uses of the NII. The
success of these pilot projects will create an ongoing process that will
generate more innovative approaches each year."




This alert is posted by Communications Catalyst and its NII Clearinghouse
Project, which is supported by private foundations to track federal
funding of communication programs and to increase access to government
information. We receive no federal support.


We are not currently staffed to handle inquiries about the NTIA grant
guidelines ourselves, so please address questions directly to NTIA.
However, as we develop our capacities, we hope to play useful roles in
identifying common interests among nonprofits that use the NII and in
referring potential new users to appropriate technical assistance
providers.
