State Broadband Capacity Building:
This project will establish a statewide broadband office to coordinate state broadband activities and secure additional resources to assist regional planning teams as they fulfill their broadband outreach agendas.
This program will develop and conduct a broadband education series that is linked to the greater statewide mapping initiative. PSCW will conduct regional and statewide events, accessible webinars, and other educational opportunities for community leaders, broadband advocates, and institutions. These events will focus on broadband policy, technology, and developments and will deepen the knowledge base of broadband advocates in Wisconsin. The technical assistance program will provide background and knowledge for regional strategic planning efforts.
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
Address File Development:
The Wisconsin Land Information Program (WLIP) was formed to meet the parcel data needs of state agencies, regional planning commissions, emergency managers, tribal agencies and other stakeholders. SBDD funding will support WLIP’s design, development, integration, testing, outreach, support, and data production necessary for securing statewide parcel and address data.
