Technology Opportunities Program

The Technology Opportunities Program (TOP), an initiative of the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA), has announced the opening of its FY2001 grant competition. TOP grants are designed to further the vision of an information society by demonstrating practical applications of new telecommunications and information technologies to serve the public interest.

Congress has appropriated $42.5 million for TOP awards in FY2001; the deadline for proposals is March 22, 2001. For more information, including details and online registration for TOP technical assistance workshops (to be held in Denver, Colorado; St. Louis, Missouri; and Washington, D.C.), visit the TOP Web site.
