Very exciting! Thanks, Judy, for sharing with the list.

One small note -- states actually have two months (due July 12) to submit
their Digital Equity Act planning grant applications. So a little more
breathing room -- but still very important to hit the ground running on our
advocacy with governors' offices!

Hi all
Digital Equity Act (and other) funding opportunities have dropped (see
below).

Note that states have one month to put in their application to draw down
the DEA planning funds (approx $1M per state) and then a year to write the
plan to access the $1.5B via formula.  (The remaining $1.25B will come out
in a competitive grant program following state plan submission).

Also - On Pat Tyler's call this coming Thursday, state adult ed staff from
IL and TX will talk about how they are moving forward on DEA planning.

JUST ANNOUNCED: Biden-Harris Administration Launches $45 Billion “Internet
for All” Initiative to Bring Affordable, Reliable High-Speed Internet to
Everyone in America

Today, U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina M. Raimondo will visit Durham, N.C., to
announce the launch of the Biden-Harris Administration’s Internet for All
initiative, which will invest $45 billion to provide affordable, reliable,
high-speed internet for everyone in America by the end of the decade. The
initiative will be administered and implemented by the U.S. Department of
Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration
(NTIA).

The Internet for All initiative will build internet infrastructure, teach
digital skills, and provide necessary technology to ensure that everyone in
America – including communities of color, rural communities, and older
Americans – has the access and skills they need to fully participate in
today’s society.

The Internet for All programs launched today with three Notices of Funding
Opportunity:

- *Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program* ($42.5
billion)
- *Enabling Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure Program* ($1 billion)
- *State Digital Equity Act program* ($1.5 billion)

Want to learn more about these historic programs?

The Internet for All Webinar series connects key stakeholders to the
critical information they need to help ensure the programs’ success.

The programs are funded through President Biden’s Infrastructure Investment
and Jobs Act, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and will be
administered and implemented by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National
Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).
