Grant Applications Available for Increased Broadband
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/05/2017
The Wisconsin Public Service Commission is now accepting applications for Broadband Expansion Grants. Governor Scott Walker says this round of grants will extend $1.5 million to underserved areas of the state.
"We've made progress on improving access to reliable and efficient broadband, but there is still work to be done," Walker said. "I announced additional resources in December that are included in the state budget, which will provide Wisconsin's families and
businesses with the technology and information they need to prosper in today's global economy."
The grant program provides reimbursement for equipment and construction expenses incurred to extend or improve broadband telecommunications service throughout the state.
Applications for the next round of grants are due June 30.
