ReConnecting Rural Broadband - Strategies for Funding Success
Friday, May 10, 2019
1:00 PM Eastern

-Overview

It’s a well-known fact that rural communities often face crises of connectivity. They suffer from small economies of scale and lack the capacity to fund and operate broadband networks. Yet high-speed internet is necessary in the twenty-first century economy, so the funding gap must be bridged. In an attempt to address these issues, USDA Rural Development just issued a funding notice for a new program: the Rural e-Connectivity Pilot Program (“ReConnect”). The ReConnect Program joins a growing field of potential sources of capital for rural internet infrastructure projects. Join CDFA and experts from across the country as we discuss creative solutions for responding to ReConnect’s funding notice, and discover additional creative methods of financing rural broadband infrastructure.
