September 14, 2023
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) continues to accept applications for the Federal Funding Account, a $2 billion grant program focused on building last-mile broadband internet infrastructure for communities without access to fast and reliable internet service.
Applications will be accepted through the CPUC’s Broadband Grant Portal. The deadline to apply is Friday, September 29, 2023, at 4 p.m. The program will award grants for reliable and affordable networks to communities that need it most, particularly low-income and disadvantaged communities facing a growing digital divide. The program encourages Tribal and local government participation and reflects California’s priority of bringing affordable, reliable service to all Californians.
