How We Can Help

BroadbandUSA provides guidance to help communities expand their broadband capacity and promote digital inclusion. We bring stakeholders together to solve problems, contribute to emerging policies, link communities to other federal agencies and funding sources, and promote collaboration across agencies that fund broadband. These efforts equip state, local, and tribal leaders to make key decisions on how to use broadband to advance their overarching goals – ranging from economic development, job creation, improving educational outcomes, and increasing health care delivery and public safety.

BroadbandUSA works with stakeholders from state, local, and tribal government, federal agencies, policy organizations, trade associations, and the public to:

Convene and support state and local government broadband leaders through the State Broadband Leaders Network (SBLN) and the Digital Inclusion Leaders Network (DILN).
