FCC Chairwoman Rosenworcel Shares Proposal for Second Funding Chance to Promote Affordable Connectivity Program

Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel shared with her colleagues a Report and Order proposing a second, more targeted Notice of Funding Opportunity to raise awareness and promote the Affordable Connectivity Program as part of the FCC’s broader consumer outreach efforts. The proposal is part of a reinvigorated campaign to enroll more eligible households and families in the nation’s largest broadband affordability program. The outreach grant program seeks to enlist trusted community messengers to develop innovative strategies to reach historically unserved and underserved communities. Selected partners will be provided with funding from the National Competitive Outreach Program and Tribal Competitive Outreach Program to increase participation among eligible, low-income households in need of an internet connection.
