Connected Nation (Nevada)

Designee for the State of Nevada

Project Components

State Broadband Capacity Building:

Staff time for this project will support the Nevada Broadband Task Force and, at the direction of the Task Force and the State Librarian, coordinate statewide broadband activities and provide outreach to local communities.

Technical Assistance:

Through this project, the Connect Nevada initiative will gather and present research to local communities, government and non-profit offices and agencies. In combination with survey work funded in the original proposal, Connect Nevada will have the tools to provide the Task Force with an analysis of how well the state has met the goals it presented in its broadband strategic plan.

Local Regional Technology Planning Teams:

This project will support regional planning teams in the 14 counties with the lowest rates of broadband availability and adoption. Planning Teams will meet at local libraries and will be composed of volunteers representing a cross-section of the community. The local planning process will work in parallel with and compliment the work of the BTOP-funded “One Click Away” project, which will provide technical training to local residents.

Data Collection, Integration, and Validation:

This project was originally funded for broadband planning activities and two years of data collection. In September of 2010, this project was amended to extend data collection activities for an additional three years and to identify and implement best practices.
