The Broadband Infrastructure Program is a $288 million broadband deployment program directed to facilitate partnerships between a State, or one or more political subdivisions of a State, and a provider of fixed broadband service to support broadband infrastructure deployment to areas lacking broadband.
In their applications, which are currently undergoing review, applicants indicated their projects' proposed service areas using census blocks.
To assist NTIA in targeting federal funds appropriately to areas lacking qualified broadband service, broadband service providers may voluntarily submit to NTIA information about the broadband services they offer in any of the proposed areas a covered partnership has designated for funding. Please see the Proposed Service Area Response Submission Guidelines for further detail. The Excel spreadsheet below contains a complete list of census blocks as provided by applicants. The Excel spreadsheet contains the applicant name, proposed service areas, census blocks, and State or Territory associated with each application.
On December 6, NTIA published additional proposed service areas of applications undergoing review for funding through the Broadband Infrastructure Program. The additional proposed service areas were provided by applicants as part of the application submissions before the program’s 90-day application window closed on August 17, 2021 but were omitted in error from NTIA’s first announcement on October 4, 2021. Broadband service providers are invited to submit information about any services offered in the additional proposed service areas by December 21, 2021. Voluntary submissions should be provided in accordance with Section VIII.B of the Broadband Infrastructure Program Notice of Funding Opportunity.
