We created a series of training videos and resources to help potential applicants navigate federal funding rules and regulations related to Advance Colorado Broadband projects. These resources will help you identify possible obstacles your agency may face as you begin managing federally-funded projects. Depending on the project, there may be additional requirements that apply to your work. This federal regulation compliance series applies to all federal grants, including State & Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF), Capital Projects Fund (CPF), Broadband, Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) and Digital Equity grants.
