The United States government has prioritized expanding broadband coverage to those communities that remain underserved or unserved. Through various programs such as CAF, RDOF, CARES, and USDA ReConnect, billions of dollars have been allocated and distributed to providers for increasing their broadband coverage and closing the digital divide.
As the demand for increased coverage grows, federal agencies are now expanding their funding with a focus on distribution at the state and local levels. Some federal agencies are closing applications as soon as February 22, 2022.
ADTRAN has compiled a list of 2022 resources to assist service providers and communities looking to claim funding for expanded broadband coverage. Learn more below about the American Rescue Plan, USDA ReConnect Program, and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
