Grants & Funding

A number of New York State and federal funding opportunities are, or will soon be, available to municipalities. New opportunities will be listed here as they become available.

New York State Funding

As part of her 2022 State of the State address, Governor Hochul announced the $1+ billion ConnectALL initiative — the largest ever investment in New York's 21st century infrastructure. This initiative will deliver affordable internet access to millions of New Yorkers, bolster digital equity, and transform the state's digital infrastructure through new investments. A cornerstone of the ConnectALL initiative is to empower municipalities to assess and solve their unique connectivity challenges through investments in local planning, public infrastructure, and internet expansion in rural areas.

Additional information on New York State funding programs will be available soon.

 

Federal Funding

National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) offers a number of broadband programs to support municipalities and maintains a clearinghouse though BroadbandUSA with additional resources.
