Infrastructure grants are awarded to support investments in expanding the availability of broadband service in the state. Communications service providers and community leaders are encouraged to partner on infrastructure grant applications for projects that generate significant public benefit. Broadband service enables civic and cultural participation, employment, lifelong learning and access to essential services. Currently, preference is given to projects that propose the greatest relative improvement to existing internet service in the least served areas of Maine.
