FCC Rural Broadband Experiment Eligible Areas

The FCC has invited providers, communities, and others to apply for funding to build broadband networks in areas without adequate fixed broadband service today. On February 7, the FCC released a list of areas that are potentially eligible for this program along with the annual subsidy that might be available to fund robust and scalable networks in those areas.

Eligible areas include census tracts containing census blocks that do not have fixed broadband service at 3 Mbps down/768 kbps up. This page contains statewide maps of these potentially eligible areas, noting the eligible census tracts, the areas within those tracts eligible for funding, and the proposed subsidy amount. More granular, county and community-based mapping analysis for interested communities and providers is available on request.

In addition, you can view white papers about “expressions of interest” filed by applicants in specific states as well as key takeaways from these submissions. 

For more information on this funding opportunity and information on how to apply, see Connected Nation's Policy Briefs.
