RE: Economic Recovery Update: $4 Billion in ARRA Broadband Grants and Loans Announced
The Obama Administration has announced the availability of $4 billion in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act loans and grants to help bring broadband service to un-served and underserved communities across America. This is the first round of Recovery Act funding aimed at expanding broadband access to help bridge the technological divide and create jobs building out Internet infrastructure.
To better prepare communities to be able to compete for the grants, they will be holding a series of public workshops about the application process throughout July. Confirmed locations for these workshops are listed below.
