Connecting Minority Communities Pilot Program

The Connecting Minority Communities Pilot Program is a $268 million grant program to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), and Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) for the purchase of broadband internet access service and eligible equipment or to hire and train information technology personnel.

NTIA is continuing to review the more than 170 applications received during the application window, which closed on Dec. 1, 2021. The Connecting Minority Communities (CMC) Pilot Program will announce additional awards on a rolling basis as they go through NTIA's review process.
