Does NTIA’s BEAD Program Fit Your Co-op’s Broadband Plans?

November 9 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Teresa Ferguson

NRTC’s Teresa Ferguson, senior director, Broadband and Infrastructure Funding, will present during this webinar for CFC members.

Broadband access can be as important as reliable electricity, and yet many communities are still waiting for high-speed internet options. To solve the problem, a growing number of cooperatives are either actively delivering broadband services to their members or exploring the business case around those services. The federal government has several programs available to provide broadband grants in underserved areas. The National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (NTIA) Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) Program has been allocated $42 billion to expand high-speed internet access by funding planning, infrastructure deployment and adoption programs.

BEAD will be a highly competitive program, and winning is not a guarantee. Join Teresa Ferguson, senior director of Broadband and Infrastructure Funding with NRTC, and Brian Sloboda, director of Utility Research & Policy with CFC, as they discuss the ins and outs of BEAD, how it works and what it takes to be a partner with your state to receive funding. This webinar will help put your system on the path to winning.
