Evaluation of the Telecommunications and Information Infrastructure Assistance Program for the 1994 and 1995 Grant Years

February 17, 1999

Released in February 1999, this report is a comprehensive assessment of projects funded during its first two years of operation. The study was conducted by Westat, a Rockville, Maryland, research and consulting firm. The report looks at short-term project impacts and examines the potential for long-term impact. The study methodology consisted of (1) a comprehensive document review of applications and progress reports; (2) a mail survey of 206 projects, and (3) site visits to 24 projects. Site visit findings were published as 24 individual case study reports. Each report discusses how the project was implemented, project accomplishments, impact on the community, lessons learned from each project, and how each project envisions its future plans.
