Digital Access Plan

Wyoming Digital Access Plan

The Wyoming Broadband Office (WBO) is developing a Digital Access grant program in advance of funds we expect to receive from the State Digital Equity Capacity Grant Program at the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). This multi-year grant program will focus on improving the affordability, adoption, and use of broadband throughout Wyoming.

To receive NTIA funding, the WBO was first required to apply for a Digital Equity Planning Grant and complete a State Digital Equity Plan. WBO’s plan is named the Wyoming Digital Access Plan and it will guide our digital access efforts and inform the application to NTIA for the State Digital Equity Capacity Grant Program. (See FAQs below for more information.)

The Broadband Office has completed a draft Digital Access Plan.  Public comment about the plan ended August 17th.
