CBO Launches Community Broadband Needs Survey

As the CBO prepares to deploy $500-700 million in broadband grant funding, we recognize that many of the communities in need of broadband service may not have the capacity to develop and manage a broadband project or plan. With that in mind, we have developed a Community Broadband Needs Survey to better understand the how we can assist communities across Colorado who are looking to attract or improve broadband services. We welcome your feedback on topics such as grant writing, mapping, engineering, project management and more. This survey will close on Nov. 11.
