Connect Iowa, an initiative to increase broadband Internet access across rural areas of the state, has received a $2.2 million matching grant funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The U.S. Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration awarded the grant to support a broadband mapping and planning program in Iowa.
The funds include $1.7 million over two years for data collection and mapping of broadband availability to identify remaining gaps in rural access. Another $500,000 over five years will fund planning activities.
