The Missouri Broadband Infrastructure Program is funded via the State of Missouri’s share of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). This $265 million program will help communities and providers across the state invest in broadband infrastructure to bring access to unserved and underserved areas through competitive grants. The Broadband Infrastructure Grant Program’s guidelines were posted in late May and DED accepted public comment from May 31 through June 15. The final guidelines are now available here. The application window will open August 15, 2022, and will close September 29, 2022.
