Overview

Rural Utilities Service Broadband Investment Program $2.5 billion for Loans and Grants

On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (“ARRA”).  This document provides information on how Rural Development’s Rural Utilities Service will implement the broadband provisions of the ARRA.

 

RUS will adminster $2.5 billion in grants, loans, and loan guarantees for broadband projects in rural communities.  Seventy-five percent of the areas to be served must be rural regions without enough high-speed broadband access to promote local economic development.
