The Broadband Office has approximately $1 million in CARES II (state funds) available for disbursement.  The Last Mile Grant Program, a pilot project, will focus on those residential homes with students that completed the "I Need Internet" Survey.  Attention will be given to census blocks that show as served (green as of September 30, 2021) on our broadband maps.  These areas are commonly known as "doughnut holes" within served areas.
