BTOP & BIP online matchmaking tool available

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) announced BroadbandMatch, an online matchmaking tool to help applicants identify partners and develop stronger proposals for the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) or the Broadband Initiatives Program (BIP).  Any applicant can post a profile identifying what they can provide, as well as search for potential partners that meet their needs.

BroadbandMatch may be found at

RUS and NTIA also plan to announce rules for the final round of funding in the next few weeks.

For more details, view the press release.  I noticed in the press release that libraries are specifically mentioned as potential partners.
