With broadband access disparities placed in sharp relief due to the pandemic, new grant and subsidy programs present the biggest opportunity in a decade (or more) to obtain support for broadband infrastructure expansion and the provision of affordable service.

In this session, we will discuss:

  • An update on rules and application processes for recently enacted federal support programs, including: 
    • The FCC's Emergency Broadband Benefit program; and
    • The NTIA's Broadband Infrastructure Deployment, Tribal Broadband Connectivity, and Connecting Minority Communities grant programs
  • An overview of potential other support opportunities on the horizon, including:
    • Expansion of E-Rate funding in support of distance learning;
    • Broadband support as part of a Congressional infrastructure package; and
    • Other programs and initiatives

This webinar is complimentary, but registration is required.
