  1. Helping Domestic Violence Survivors Access Safe and Affordable Connectivity – The Commission will consider a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which would begin the Commission’s required implementation of the Safe Connections Act of 2022.

(WC Docket Nos. 22-238, 11-42, 21-450) (FACT SHEET)
  2. Connecting Tribal Communities to Broadband – The Commission will consider a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which would seek comments on improvements to the E-Rate program that would increase access for Tribal applicants generally as well as within the Tribal Libraries E-Rate Pilot Program. (CC Docket Nos. 02-6, 96-45, 97-21) (FACT SHEET)
  3. Restricted Adjudicatory Matter – The Commission will consider a restricted adjudicatory matter.

Chairwoman Rosenworcel also released a Blog Post on the upcoming meeting.
