American Rescue Plan Act

In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) was passed by Congress and signed by President Joe Biden into law. This sweeping legislation will provide $350 billion in economic stimulus and emergency funding for state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the U.S. Treasury is currently in the rulemaking process detailing the specifics of how this funding can be spent, we expect that governments will be given the latitude to make necessary investments in projects like broadband infrastructure.

With this once-in-a-generation influx of funding on the horizon, we are prepared to assist towns and municipalities across the United States in accessing this money. From the initial application process to the selection of an ISP vendor to the final infrastructure build-out, our experienced team will work with you to make high-speed broadband in your community a reality.
