New NYS Broadband Program

The New NY Broadband Program
The New NY Broadband Program (the "Program") will provide grants to qualifying applicants to incentivize the expansion of broadband access to unserved and underserved areas throughout the State.
Authorized by the 2015-2016 NYS Budget, the Program makes available $500 million to applicants agreeing to make co-investments in the funded infrastructure projects.
Program funds will be awarded to advance the Governor's goal of Statewide high-speed Internet access at speeds of at least 100 Mbps (download) in most places, and 25 Mbps (download) in the most remote, unserved areas of the State..
