NTIA Announces Municipal Broadband Funding Opportunity

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has released a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) featuring Enabling Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure, which is direct competitive funding. Municipalities are among the eligible applicants.
The Enabling Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure Program provides $1 billion in funding for this vital part of our nation's high-speed network to reduce the cost of bringing high-speed internet to unserved and underserved communities.
NTIA also announced funding opportunities for the initial state round of funding for the Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) and an initial round of state capacity building and planning funds through the State Digital Equity Program. States are the eligible applicants and we will alert you if New Jersey applies for and is awarded funds and opens funding opportunities to municipalities.
