PTFP to Shutdown
Grant Round Cancelled

On April 15, 2011, the President signed Public Law 112-10, The Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011, which provided no funding for the Public Telecommunications Facilities Program (PTFP) in Fiscal Year 2011.

As a result, NTIA will not process applications it has received or award any additional grants under the PTFP.

NTIA has begun the orderly shutdown of PTFP and will destroy copies of all applications received for the FY 2011 grant round upon the shutdown of the program.

NTIA will continue to monitor PTFP grants it has previously awarded to ensure that taxpayer funds are utilized in the most responsible and efficient manner. The terms and conditions of all PTFP grants remain in effect until the expiration of a grantís award period.

PTFP no longer accepts applications.
