FCC to Hold Tribal Workshop in Wisconsin

The FCC announced today that it plans to hold a tribal workshop July 31 on the Lac du Flambeau Reservation in Wisconsin. The event is scheduled to run from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and “will include an introduction about the mission and work of the Commission and a presentation on the process for challenging areas initially deemed ineligible for universal service funding in the Mobility Fund Phase II (MF-II) reverse auction.

There will also be presentations on other Commission proceedings and programs of Tribal interest, including overviews of the Universal Service Fund, the Tribal Radio Priority, and the Tribal Engagement Obligation. In addition, there will be an opportunity for government-to-government consultations with Tribal leaders or their designees in a collaborative and constructive environment,” a public notice said.
