Broadband Interagency Working Group

NTIA serves as co-chair of the Broadband Interagency Working Group (BIWG) alongside the Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service (RUS). Through the BIWG, NTIA works with other federal agencies to improve coordination across programs, reduce regulatory barriers to broadband deployment, promote awareness of the importance of federal support for broadband investment and digital inclusion programs, and collect and share information with communities about available federal resources for broadband deployment and digital inclusion efforts.

More than 25 federal agencies participate in the BIWG, which continues the work of the Broadband Opportunity Council. In January 2017, NTIA and RUS announced the formation of the BIWG in a Broadband Opportunity Council Agencies’ Progress Report.
