The Telecommunications Program supports the publication of geospatial visualizations related to its loan and grant portfolio. These visualizations are intended to help stakeholders easily identify possible partnerships and to aid in the review of new loan and grant applications. The Telecommunications Program is eager to continue its GIS efforts as a public service to provide a clear representation of its ongoing investments in rural America and Agency objectives.
