Broadband funding opportunities

Find details here on broadband funding opportunities, from both federal and state programs, in many different forms: infrastructure grants, planning grants, last/middle mile grants, and many more.

With BEAD Funding around the corner, $42.45 billion will be distributed amongst the states to expand internet access by funding planning, infrastructure deployment, and adoption. Each state is expected to receive $100 Million at the very least and will distribute these funds through their individual programs they have established.

Using the map below, you can keep track of all the active funding programs in each state, and which ones to look out for in the future. In the meantime, states are continuing to use ARPA money to fund these programs.
