Title: ●Repeal of Regulations Governing the Public Telecommunications Facilities Program 

NTIA issued this rule to repeal its regulations governing the Public Telecommunications Facilities Program (PTFP). The PTFP is a competitive grant program that helps public broadcasting stations, State and local governments, Indian Tribes, and nonprofit organizations to construct public television and radio stations. As of Fiscal Year 2011, no funds have been available for PTFP grants. NTIA is repealed its regulations governing the PTFP because the regulations are unnecessary and obsolete.
