Community Connect Grants Now Available

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Utilities Service (RUS) has announced it is accepting applications for grants to provide broadband access in rural communities currently without broadband service. Making broadband service available to rural communities can help make a tremendous difference in the quality of life for citizens. Funding is provided through the Community Connect Grant program. Grants are available to communities in the most rural, economically challenged areas where loans would not be sustainable. Funds may be used to construct, acquire or lease facilities to deploy broadband to residents, businesses and essential community facilities such as police and fire stations, libraries, schools, and health care clinics.

Applications for the 2011 Fiscal Year are currently being accepted. All applications must be submitted to RUS by May 3, 2011.
