September 28, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Senator Gillibrand and NYSAC are co-hosting a webinar with the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to offer guidance and information on the latest ReConnect, Round 4 grant program. This webinar is intended to highlight this important funding source and assist NYS’s eligible applicants to prepare applications for the Reconnect Program, due on November 2nd. The ReConnect Program provides loans and grants to cover costs of broadband construction, improvement, or acquisition of facilities and equipment needed to provide broadband services. The federal government allocated $1.926 billion in funds through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act which was signed into law late last year. USDA Rural Development recently announced a $401 million investment for high-speed internet access in rural areas through the ReConnect Program. On September 6, 2022, applications will open for a new round of funding. Eligible rural New York communities seeking to narrow the digital divide to consider the ReConnect Program.
