NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR CHILDREN'S EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION






Welcome to the NECET Home Page!!

NTIA's National Endowment For Children's Educational Television was funded from 1993 to 1995 to support the creation and production of television programming that enhances the education of children. During the three year period, the program provided matching grants for television productions designed to supplement the current children's educational program offerings and strengthen the fundamental intellectual skills of children.

Congress has not appropriated funds for this program since 1995. NTIA is currently closing out projects that were funded during the three years that grants were awarded. Many of these recipients have developed success children's television programs and series that are broadcast by public television stations across the nation.
