Our Division of Economic Development provides the opportunity for tribes to receive funding to explore the possibility of developing or extending broadband services in their communities to: 

  • Spur economic development and commercial activity 
  • Create opportunities for self-employment 
  • Enhance educational resources and remote learning opportunities 
  • Meet emergency and law enforcement needs

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) also has grants to expand broadband access and adoption on tribal land through its Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program.  Whereas their application window closed on September 1, 2021, we will also update this webpage for their next solicitation.

Eligibility Information

All federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes, bands, villages, nations, or communities are eligible for NTBG funding. NTBG grant applications are rated on the potential positive impacts broadband could bring to an applicant’s community, with additional credit awarded to applications involving projects to be developed in Opportunity Zones. An Opportunity Zone is an economically-distressed community where new investments, including investments in broadband systems, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment under certain conditions.
