The Department of Economic Development is requesting public feedback on its proposed Broadband Infrastructure Grant Program, funded via the State of Missouri’s share of the American Rescue Plan Act. This $265 million program is intended to help providers and communities across regions invest in broadband infrastructure to bridge the access to service gap in unserved and underserved areas through competitive grants.

The Public Input Survey is open now, and the deadline to take the survey is June 15th at 5pm. If you are unable to submit comments online, you may submit comments by contacting DED at 573-751-4962. Complete information is available on DED’s ARPA broadband webpage.
