Greetings,

For those that might find a funding opportunity for community broadband in rural areas of interest, please read on:

A Notice of Solicitation of Applications (NOSA) was issued on 3/15 by USDA Rural Development for its Community Connect Grant Program. This program helps fund broadband deployment into rural communities where it is not yet economically viable for private sector providers to deliver service. Find more information and application materials at:

            https://www.rd.usda.gov/programs-services/community-connect-grants

There will be two informational webinars regarding this program:


*         April 5th from 1:00 to 2:00 pm EDT

*         April 10th from 1:00 to 2:00 pm EDT

The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) will host webinars focused on the Community Connect Grant Program. These webinars will inform participants about the major eligibility and regulatory requirements of the program and will provide detailed guidance on how to submit a successful application. There will also be time for participants to ask the speakers specific questions about putting together an application.
