Accelerated Deployment Grant Program for Internet Service Providers Announced by the SC Office of Regulatory Staff

The 2023 Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (“SLFRF”), Accelerated Deployment Grant Program (ADGP), seeks to compensate a portion of those construction costs for the expansion of broadband infrastructure to households, businesses, and communities in the state that were unserved. This grant program is designed to reimburse a portion of those construction costs associated with broadband projects that were constructed and completed without any public funding between March 15, 2021 – June 30, 2022.

The ADGP application period opens 1/30/2023 and closes 2/28/2023.

More information is available on the ADGP webpage, ors.sc.gov/broadband/investments/state/adgp.

Additionally, a virtual webinar through WebEx has also been scheduled to discuss the specifics of the grant program in greater detail. Interested parties are highly encouraged to register for and attend the virtual webinar, which will be held on February 2, 2023, from 10:00AM to 11:30AM.

The virtual webinar is scheduled for 60 minutes, followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. Registration is required.
