Funding and Project Summary

Much of the VTA program of work has been supported by Legislative appropriations. Projects throughout Vermont are funded through additional sources as well. We pursue federal funding opportunities, such as the Broadband Technologies Opportunities Program (BTOP), as they’re available.

Other broadband and cellular service projects in Vermont have been or are being funded by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (NTIA) Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), by the USDA’s Broadband Initiatives Program (BIP), by the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC)Connect America and Mobility Funds, and through settlements reached through Vermont Public Service Board regulatory proceedings.

Several commercial service providers are also investing significantly in their own broadband and/or cell service expansion projects.
