Fund Owner: U.S. Department of Treasury
The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRFs) provide a substantial infusion of resources to help turn the tide on the pandemic, address its economic fallout, and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery. SLFRFs may be used to make necessary investments that provide unserved or underserved locations with new or expanded broadband access. Broadband infrastructure investments should focus on households and businesses without access to broadband and those with connections that do not provide minimally acceptable speeds (defined as 25 Mbps download/3 Mbps upload), fund projects that deliver reliable service with minimum 100 Mbps download/100 Mbps upload speeds unless impracticable and complement broadband investments made through the Capital Projects Fund.
