NTIA Letter to FCC Chairman Regarding T-Band Grant Program

November 23, 2020

This letter explains the views of NTIA about its obligations under section 6103 of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (Act). In NTIA’s view, the Act provides clearly differentiated responsibilities for the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) and NTIA with respect to the reallocation of the 417-512 MHz (T-Band) spectrum - - the Commission is to reallocate and auction the spectrum and NTIA is to administer a grant program with the auction proceeds to cover the affected public safety entities’ relocation costs.
