FBA Official Statement regarding additional funding request for the bipartisan Affordable Connectivity Program

“Access to affordable, reliable high-speed internet is critical for Americans to fully participate in and take advantage of social and economic opportunities. Today the White House requested $6B in additional funding from Congress for the bipartisan Affordable Connectivity Program. Millions of people in communities across the country rely on this program for internet access; we cannot risk this money running out. We thank the Administration for their leadership on this issue and request that Congress support this request which impacts every Congressional District.”
