    Broadband Technical Assistance provides competitive cooperative agreement funding to eligible entities to receive or deliver broadband technical assistance and training that promotes the expansion of broadband into rural areas. Examples of broadband technical assistance projects may include conducting feasibility studies, completing network designs, and developing broadband financial assistance applications. The Agency encourages applicants to consider projects that will advance the following key priorities.

    • Assisting rural communities recover economically through more and better market opportunities and through improved infrastructure;
    • Ensuring all rural residents have equitable access to RD programs and benefits from RD funded projects; and
    • Reducing climate pollution and increasing resilience to the impacts of climate change through economic support to rural communities.

    Applicants to this funding opportunity are encouraged to include RPN Community Networks in their proposals by identifying Community Networks as collaborative partners or recipients of service.
