What is the Minority Broadband Initiative?

The NTIA Minority Broadband Initiative is part of NTIA’s initiative to increase minority stakeholder engagement around solving broadband access challenges in vulnerable communities. In 2019 NTIA launched the MBI to ensure all Americans can participate in the digital economy. NTIA is working with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), in recognition of their role as anchor institutions in many communities, and their potential to become “hubs” for broadband deployment, use, and application.
