The Pennsylvania Broadband Development Authority is now accepting applications for the Pennsylvania Broadband Infrastructure Program. This program will provide $200 million toward broadband line extension and development projects, as well as large-scale regional infrastructure projects. Local governments, nonprofits, cooperatives, and private entities are eligible to apply until July 10. The minimum grant is $500,000 and maximum is $10 million.
The competitive grant program will target locations that do not currently have access to 25/3 Mbps reliable service. The program will fund extensions of existing last-mile cable modem and fiber-to-the-premises broadband networks, as well as large-scale regional projects that can transform broadband availability by serving large numbers of eligible addresses.
