Public, educational and government (“PEG”) channels permit schools, governments, individuals and groups to provide and receive information about local events, emergencies, and issues. The channels encourage creation of local programming by civic groups and non-profits, cover government and school meetings, and promote localism and civic engagement.. The CAP Act responds to four immediate threats to PEG and these critical local communications. -Alliance for Community Media
