With so much vital information and communication moving online, communities and businesses unable to access high-quality internet connections aren’t just at a disadvantage, they are effectively disqualified from a major portion of the economy. With this in mind, providing broadband access to all communities across our state is a top priority for the Department of Commerce.
The Kansas Office of Broadband Development was established in 2020 to help ensure all Kansans have the opportunity to live, work, learn and compete in a global economy by improving universal access to quality, affordable and reliable broadband.
The Broadband Acceleration Grant program is Kansas’ first state-funded competitive broadband grant opportunity to fund projects that facilitate access to high-quality internet service to Kansas homes, businesses and communities.
