Grant Programs

President Biden's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $65 billion in funding to expand high-speed Internet access. These grant programs aim to make high-speed Internet affordable for all. They fund planning, infrastructure, and adoption efforts that promote digital equity and inclusion. Our goal is for everyone to have the access and skills they need to get connected.

  • The Digital Equity Act provides $2.75 billion to establish three grant programs that promote digital equity and inclusion. They aim to ensure that all people and communities have the skills, technology, and capacity needed to reap the full benefits of our digital economy. 

  • The Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program provides $42.45 billion from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law  to expand high-speed Internet access by funding planning, infrastructure deployment, and adoption programs across the country.
