WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has awarded a $199,992 grant to the State of North Dakota’s Information Technology Department. The funds will be used by the state to help maintain and expand the nationwide public safety broadband network (NPSBN), which is used by law enforcement and first responders.
