A Deep Dive on Middle Mile Broadband

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Following the launch of NLC’s Digital Equity Playbook, this NLC webinar series walks cities through the process of assessing community broadband needs, finding partners, understanding new federal grant programs and learning more about the technology that makes local broadband infrastructure work.

Middle mile broadband infrastructure is a critical and often-overlooked component of local efforts to close the digital divide. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), which appropriates $1 billion in funding for middle mile projects through the new Enabling Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure Program, makes opportunities to invest in middle mile infrastructure more accessible to local governments.

Join NLC and local leaders on Wednesday, June 15 at 10:00am to hear best practices for planning for middle mile infrastructure and lessons learned from different middle mile projects from around the United States.
