Mississippi Wireless Communication Commission

Mississippi will utilize its Mississippi Wireless Communication Commission (WCC) to implement the State and Local Implementation Grant Program (SLIGP).  The State plans to use the WCC Advisory Board, which includes all first responder disciplines, and local representatives from county governments and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians as the primary vehicles for education and outreach to local jurisdictions.  Mississippi’s single federally recognized tribe is represented on the WCC Advisory Board and has previously participated in public safety broadband planning efforts.
