A Whole-Of-Nation Approach to High-Speed Internet
States and territories across the nation have Signed On to the Internet For All Initiative and committed to connecting their communities to reliable high-speed Internet for less through the Broadband Equity Access and Deployment and State Digital Equity Planning Grant Programs. These programs will provide more than $48 billion for infrastructure deployment, skills training, and access to technologies essential for Americans to connect with their communities, their democracy, and one another.
Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program
This program builds high-speed Internet infrastructure where we need it. It also supports efforts to teach the skills and provide the equipment needed so everyone can use the Internet.
Total Allocated to North Dakota: $130,162,815.12
Digital Equity Act Programs
Three programs that provide funding to promote digital inclusion and advance equity for all. They aim to ensure that all communities have access to and use affordable, reliable high-speed Internet.
State Digital Equity Planning Grant: $516,380.00
Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program
The Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program (TBCP) is a $3 billion program, from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, to support Tribal governments bringing high-speed Internet to Tribal lands, including telehealth, distance learning, affordability, and digital inclusion initiatives.
Standing Rock Telecommunications, Inc. Total Awarded: $8,637,952
To all Township Officers,
Our goal is to get the message out to townships across the state regarding the federal program on Broadband, Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD), part of the federal Infrastructure program, which is being implemented across all 50 states and territories. Now, as this historic program moves toward deployment, it’s critical that each state fully understand the needs of its residents and businesses when it comes to broadband access. Counties and Townships are an important part of the feedback the state will need to hear as it works to finalize its plans for deployment in 2024. I would like to ensure that our Township officers across the state have this information as they move into their annual township meetings later this winter.
