These links are resources for our municipalities to stay updated on potential upcoming grant opportunities to apply for grants for Fiber to the Premise for their area. There is Federal BEAD funding under the Internet For All initiative that will be eventually rewarded to Wisconsin between 2024-2025. The map below shows how that funding was awarded across the United States. Wisconsin is ranked 16th in funding awards.
During the last budget cycle the WI legislatures voted not to fund broadband for the next two years under the state budget. The BEAD funding is currently the only broadband grant funding that would be available to help offset the cost to expand and fund fiber-to-the-premises in the next two years at a state level.
