Explore opportunities for your community with NTIA’s Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure Grant

July 19, 2022

Bill Lee, Vice President, Global Professional Service

Vecima wants to ensure that our customers and communities are exploring the funding options available to bring high-speed broadband access to all.

At Vecima, we believe there is power in connectivity, and it starts with equitable digital access.

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (NTIA) $1 billion Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure Grant is a program to expand middle-mile infrastructure (broadband infrastructure that does not connect directly to an end-user) to reduce the cost of connecting unserved and underserved areas. Government entities (states, tribal government, local government, etc.), industry (tech company, electric utility, electric co-op, telecom provider, etc.), non-profit foundations or partnerships are eligible to apply for the Middle Mile program.

The Middle Mile program supports the construction, improvement, or acquisition of middle-mile infrastructure. Applications are due on September 30, 2022.  The award will be granted no earlier than March 1, 2023, with a maximum five- year implementation timeline.

Learn more and find help with applications on the NTIA website.

Vecima’s broadband experts will be at The Independent Show in Orlando, July 24-27, at Booth #231. I’ll be available to discuss funding opportunities and strategies to help your customers and communities thrive with high-speed broadband.
