WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOUR COMMUNITY??
Congress expended the deadline for local governments and tribes to spend their CARES act funds. The new deadline for unused CARES act funding is December 31, 2021.
Cities, counties, regional governments, coops and tribes can use these funds for fiber and wireless projects, covering engineering and/or construction costs. Communities nationwide are investing in broadband infrastructure to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 and prepare themselves for the future.
