Digital Access Plan

Wyoming Digital Access Plan

Wyoming’s Broadband Digital Access Plan Accepted

The Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has accepted Wyoming’s Digital Access plan. The Digital Equity Act, part of the Internet for All initiative, aims to ensure that all people and communities have the skills, technology, and capacity needed to reap the full benefits of our digital economy.   

Using $530,006 from the State Digital Equity Planning Grant Program, Wyoming created a plan aimed at addressing disparities in digital access, skills, and affordability across the state.  

In the coming months, NTIA will launch the $1.44 billion Digital Equity Capacity Grant Program. A Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is expected to be published by the end of March at which time the state of Wyoming will be required to apply for the allocated funds. We anticipate those funds to be released over a three-year period and estimate Wyoming’s allocation to be between $7 to $12 million.
