FCC RELEASES BROADBAND FUNDING MAP
WC Docket No. 11-10
WC Docket No. 19-195
The Office of Economics and Analytics, in conjunction with the Wireline Competition Bureau,
announces the release of the Broadband Funding Map. The Broadband Funding Map and the map’s
underlying data can be found at https://fundingmap.fcc.gov/.
Section 60105 of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) requires the Commission “to
establish an online mapping tool to provide a locations overview of the overall geographic footprint of
each broadband infrastructure deployment project funded by the Federal Government.” The map
released today contains data received from the Department of Agriculture (USDA), the National
Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), and the Department of Treasury as well as
the Commission’s own data. Any funding data that are submitted to the Commission by other federal
agencies in the future will be added to the map as part of regular updates the Commission will make to the
map in accordance with the IIJA.
The Broadband Funding Map allows users to identify, search, and filter federal funding programs
by the Internet Service Provider receiving funding, the duration timeline, the number of locations
included in the project, and the download and upload speeds.3
In addition to depicting where broadband funding exists, the Broadband Funding Map contains
broadband availability data as of June 30, 2022—the same data that currently appear on the National
Broadband Map.4 When the Commission releases more recent availability data on the National
Broadband Map, the Broadband Funding Map will be updated as well.
