On May 13, 2021 H-GAC launched a new broadband planning website.
The site will help communities understand where residents lack access to high-speed internet and where the adoption of existing internet is limited.
The site includes eligibility maps and detailed information on federal grants and loan programs for broadband expansion.
At the event, expert speakers from CTC Technology and Energy, Connected Nation, and NRTC Rural Utilities Cooperative introduced current federal funding sources and potential partners for local governments. The City of Dayton shared the story of their new municipally owned broadband network: DayNet.
