Funding Alert

The USDA’s Community Connect Program has been extended. Submit your applications now!

On December 19, 2023, the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) published a correction notice. This makes important changes to the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Community Connect Program for Fiscal Year 2023, published on March 20, 2023, and extends the Community Connect Program application window until February 20, 2024.

The Community Connect program provides financial assistance to eligible applicants that will provide broadband service in rural, economically challenged communities where service does not exist. Rural areas that lack any existing broadband speed of at least 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream are eligible.

More information is available through the following link: Program Website.
