New Guide for Historic Broadband Funding


A new guidebook aims to help local leaders as they shape their cases for the billions of dollars that are going from the federal government to states in order to support broadband and digital equity across the country.

The guidebook — dubbed Accelerate: A Community Broadband Planning Program — is the work of the Benton Institute for Broadband and Society, which is a nonprofit group that works to support media and telecommunications to enhance democracy. While the money is going down from legislation at the federal level directly to state government, a good amount of the funding will eventually go to the local level, with digital inclusion work in particular taking place in communities.
