A vibrant economy starts with connectivity. Stable, reliable broadband infrastructure positions Idaho communities to attract business and enhance quality of life for their citizens.

Idaho Broadband Grant Program

The Idaho Broadband Grant Program funded broadband infrastructure and equipment investments to underserved households, public safety and local governments and medical clinics and hospital facilities to address needs for distance learning, telehealth, public safety and e-commerce. Projects that serve communities of less than 3,000 persons and/or communities that are unserved with 10 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload or less speeds were prioritized.
