The Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act, recently signed into law by President Biden, makes available several billion dollars for tribes to build and expand their broadband networks. The Infrastructure Act allotted $2 billion for the Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program, $1 billion for a middle-mile program overseen by NTIA and $2 billion for the USDA RUS ReConnect program. Tribes must be prepared when the application window opens for these federal grant opportunities.
The purpose of this summit is to educate Tribal grant applicants about:
upcoming federal broadband network funding opportunities
what is required to set up a front office/back office
how to build a broadband network
broadband equipment/services necessary to build a broadband network
