This competitive grant program will assist municipalities across the Commonwealth with the construction/completion of a municipal fiber network.
The Municipal Fiber Grant program is a competitive grant program that will support the closing of critical gaps that exist in municipal networks. The provision of fiber in communities allows for centralized management of IT infrastructure, including an enterprise approach to network monitoring, cybersecurity, records management, and backup and recovery. A cohesive municipal network also creates opportunities to gain economies of scale by aggregating internet bandwidth purchases and the associated security infrastructure.
The application period for the FY23 Municipal Fiber Grant program opens on March 15, 2023 through April 14, 2023 at noon.
