Community Broadband Action Network (CBAN) is hosting a webinar about the upcoming round of grants from the federal Digital Equity Act following the recent announcement that digital equity plans for all 50 states have been approved. The grants will first be available through states and later directly through the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. Iowa is eligible to apply for $8.4 million in federal grants. Jon Willow and Bri Dillavou from CBAN, and Chris Hall, federal program officer with the NTIA, will break down each of the three Digital Equity Act grant programs, what they’re for and who can apply. The webinar, scheduled for May 1 at 1 p.m., is free to attend with RSVP
