Ask a Broadband Expert

Thanks to philanthropic funding from the Ford Foundation and Schmidt Futures, government employees and non-profit organizations can use the NBRH Help Desk to book free time with experts in broadband policy, funding, and program implementation. We can answer most broadband questions in four days or less.

Example of questions or help you can submit: I am meeting with the governors’ team to discuss budget allocation for my State’s Broadband Office. In preparation for this meeting, I need support in creating a staffing plan for my office. What kind of expertise should my staff have? How can I best allocate resources to support my staffing plan?
