CVFiber is seeking grants from ARPA relief funds received by towns.
Your town has an opportunity to double its grant funding for broadband in your community.
The Vermont Community Broadband Board (VCBB) will MATCH the first $1.5 million in town grant commitments to CVFiber.
If your town acts quickly, your ARPA grant will have double the impact. Ask your town officials to appropriate a portion of their ARPA funds to CVFiber for high-speed broadband.
All such funds — town grants and matching funds — will be spent within the granting town’s borders. The match commitment is on a first-come, first-serve basis until the matching funds run out, or until the filing deadline, September 15, 2022.
Here’s what you can do. Speak up at your Select Board or City Council meeting or use the form below to send them a personalize email. Tell them about your own struggles with Internet service or how your community would benefit from high-speed broadband.
Tell your local officials the time to act is now!
