The Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program is a $1 billion program for tribal governments to bring high-speed Internet to tribal lands. It also supports telehealth, distance learning, affordability, and digital inclusion initiatives.
The application window for this program closed on Sept. 1, 2021. NTIA is continuing to review the more than 280 applications submitted. We announced the first awards on November 16, 2021. We'll announce more awards on a rolling basis.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provided $2 billion more in funding for this program. We'll post updates on this program when they are available. For more information, visit BroadbandUSA.
