About » State Broadband Programs

Launched in 2009, NTIA's State Broadband Initiative (SBI) Program implements the joint purposes of the Recovery Act and the Broadband Data Improvement Act, which envisioned a comprehensive program, led by state entities or non-profit organizations working at their direction, to facilitate the integration of broadband and information technology into state and local economies.

NTIA awarded a total of approximately $293 million to 56 grantees, one to each of the 50 states, 5 territories, and the District of Columbia, or their designees. Of this amount, NTIA granted approximately $167 million to fund five years of state-led efforts to semiannually collect data on the availability, speed, and location of broadband services, as well as the broadband services used by community anchor institutions, such as schools, libraries and hospitals.

In addition to this landmark data collection effort, NTIA provided over $126 million dollars for state-specific efforts to promote the innovative use of broadband technology and the improvement of broadband access and adoption. Examples of such efforts include: programs to assist small businesses and community institutions in using technology more effectively, research to investigate barriers to broadband adoption, creative applications that increase access to government services and information, and state and local task forces to expand broadband access and adoption.
