The U.S. Internet for All Initiative, part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will provide $45 billion to provide affordable and reliable high-speed internet for everyone by the end of the decade. The initiative will be administered and implemented by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).
The initiative launched with three grant opportunities:
- Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program ($42.5 billion)
- Enabling Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure Program ($1 billion)
- State Digital Equity Act program ($1.5 billion)
NTIA is conducting a series of webinars this week and next for all interested parties to learn more about these opportunities. Click here for more information on the webinars. Click here for more about these programs.
