FCC Boradband Funding, Webinar Move Ahead

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is moving ahead with its Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) and Rural 5G Fund proceedings. The purpose of these programs is to encourage the development of infrastructure necessary within rural areas to ensure access to adequate broadband service. 

Combined, these programs will offer nearly $30 billion to internet service providers to assist them with deploying broadband to rural areas that do not currently have adequate high-speed internet service. To view more about these programs and their importance for your community, please see the League’s recent blog post. You may also wish to attend a webinar hosted by the FCC for state, local, and tribal officials on May 20, 2020, regarding the RDOF program. More information on the webinar can be found in the FCC’s public notice.
