The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) board approved an $82 million budget for operations in fiscal year 2020 (FY20), with a focus on supporting public-safety engagement, continued oversight of the deployment of the nationwide public-safety broadband network (NPSBN) and future investments in the network.

The budget allocates $82 million for FirstNet’s operating budget in FY20 and an additional $82 million in reserves for operations. The budget also provides $145 million for reinvestment in support of FirstNet network enhancement, coverage and functionality on behalf of public safety.

FirstNet released its road map earlier this week and its investment principles in March.
