The FCC announces funding opportunities…

The Federal Communications Commission today announced details for additional outreach grant opportunities to promote the Affordable Connectivity
Program (ACP). The outreach grants seek to enlist targeted trusted community messengers to develop innovative outreach strategies to reach historically unserved and underserved communities.
With today’s announcement, the Commission is issuing two Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFOs) for up to $10 million, targeting $5 million for the National Competitive Outreach Program (NCOP) and $5 million for the Tribal Competitive Outreach Program (TCOP). Eligible NCOP applicants must submit applications by no later than 6:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on June 30, 2023. Eligible TCOP applicants must submit applications by no later than 6:00 p.m. EDT on July 28, 2023. …

The ACP is a $14.2 billion FCC program created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that helps
ensure that qualifying low-income households can afford the broadband they need for work,
school, healthcare, and more. The program plays an integral role in helping to bridge the
broadband affordability gap.
