The Broadband Access Grant program, administered by the Utah Broadband Center, offsets capital expenses in deploying “last-mile broadband” in unserved rural and underserved economically distressed areas.
Last-mile infrastructure is broadband that serves as the final leg connecting the broadband service provider’s network to the end-user customer’s on-premises telecommunications or internet equipment.
Grant funds will go to areas unlikely to receive broadband service without grant funding. The federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) has set aside $10 million for this grant.
