This webinar will provide an overview of the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program. This program builds high-speed internet infrastructure where we need it. It also supports efforts to teach the skills and provide the equipment needed so everyone can use the internet. It drives partnerships within states because everyone needs to be involved to get all Americans online. This webinar will help applicants understand the program and prepare them to write high-quality applications.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $65 billion to expand high-speed internet service. It funds programs that support planning, infrastructure, and adoption efforts. Programs promote digital equity and inclusion. Our goal is for everyone to have the skills and access they need to get connected.
