Enabling Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure - Due Sept. 30

The Enabling Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure Program provides a direct competitive grant opportunity for local governments. 

Local governments are directly eligible to apply for available federal funding for this program, which has a high degree of flexibility. This program is funded at $1 billion and will provide funding to expand and extend middle-mile infrastructure to reduce the cost of connecting unserved and underserved areas to the internet backbone. The program’s NOFO was released last month and applications are due by Sept. 30, 2022. Click here to read a recent NLC blog overviewing some key information on the Middle Mile Program.
