On Friday morning Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced the investment of $240 million to support the continued expansion of high-speed internet services to Georgians.

These funds will be made available through the Capital Projects Fund Grant Program (CPF).

CPF funding will be administered and deployed by the Office of Planning and Budget (OPB) through a competitive grant program, beginning August 15th.

The CPF program will provide the needed support to build comprehensive broadband networks in many communities struggling with the lack of broadband access.

Approved projects will use leading technologies to offer reliable, high-speed internet access that will be able to support a household with multiple users, along with businesses and their 21st-Century operations.

Details on the application process can be found here beginning Monday, August 15th, 2022.
