Baton Rouge, La - On August 25th and 27th, the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) will host webinars focused on the Rural Broadband Access Loan and Loan Guarantee Program (Broadband Program), which provides financing to telecommunications providers in rural areas where traditional financing is not otherwise available for the construction, improvement, and acquisition of facilities and equipment to provide broadband service to eligible rural communities.
These webinars will inform participants about the major eligibility and regulatory requirements of the program and will provide detailed guidance on how to submit a successful loan application. There will also be time for participants to ask the speakers specific questions about putting together an application.
Due to the limited amount of room available for each session, interested parties should pre-register with the RUS Policy and Outreach Division. Seats for each session will be reserved in the order in which requests are received by the RUS. Contact us soon to ensure you can attend the workshop that works best for your schedule.
