Community Connect Grants Issued

USDA Rural Development has awarded more than $10 million for extending broadband service.

Nineteen applicants in 13 states and American Samoa will receive $10.3 million in broadband community connect grants.

"The Community Connect program serves rural communities where broadband service is least likely to be available, but where it can make a tremendous difference in the quality of life for citizens," acting Agriculture Secretary Chuck Conner says. "The projects funded by these grants will help rural residents tap into the enormous potential of the internet."

A complete list of the grant projects can be found at www.rurdev.usda.gov.
