RUS has invested in rural telecommunications infrastructure for decades. Their current program offers more than $1.15 BILLION in grants and loans for broadband connectivity in rural communities.
In April and May 2019, RUS will accept applications for rural broadband expansion in underserved communities.
Currently, RUS has $1.15 billion in grants and loans available. With a deadline of April 29, 2019, we don’t have much time. With Conexon’s help, you can secure the capital necessary for broadband deployment to improve the quality of life in your community.
How are we so sure? In 2018, Conexon led a bidding group, the Rural Electric Cooperative Consortium, consisting solely of electric cooperatives building fiber networks. Our group was the largest and most successful bidding consortium in FCC history, securing more than $186 MILLION in public funding for Gigabit-capable networks.
