The BROADBAND KY Initiative

In today’s world, digital communications are as important as highways and bridges. Kentucky’s citizens and businesses travel digitally for work, education, and entertainment as well as to conduct business. The goal of the Office of Broadband Outreach and Development is to ensure that broadband services are available, from border to border, to our citizens and businesses.

The Commonwealth has received more than $5.3 million in grants for broadband mapping and outreach programs, including Broadband KY, from the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), State Broadband Data and Development (SBDD) grant program.
