Expanding access to broadband through increased state funding and improved state funding structures is our top policy priority. Significant public funding is coming and communities should make sure they are ready to apply for these funds.

The Maine Connectivity Authority will be working to clarify its relationship  with ConnectMaine this winter. ConnectMaine is expected to open a grant round with the remaining bond funds in early 2022.
