Governor Hogan announced in a statement this week that nearly $30 million in grants have been awarded to fund broadband infrastructure projects throughout the state. District 1 (Garrett, Allegany, and Washington Counties) will have $5,435,151 total in grants for expansion of existing broadband infrastructure and building new ones. Different contractors will be awarded parts of the grants for their portion of the project.
Governor Hogan and the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s Office of Statewide Broadband hope that this will complete a goal of providing service to 98% of Maryland households by the end of 2025.
