Broadband Stimulus 11: NOFA-2

The officially published regulations, called the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), which frame the rules for Round 2 of the federal broadband stimulus program. One (1) separate NOFA was issued each by the two (2) agencies managing the program: The Agriculture Department's Rural Utilities Service (RUS), and the Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). Note that this was a change in procedure from funding Round 1, during which the two (2) agencies issued one (1) joint NOFA, which we call NOFA-1.
