State broadband funding programs are currently being dramatically expanded thanks to the $42.45 billion in funding that is being funneled to all states through the Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) program that is part of the recently passed Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). How can infrastructure companies benefit from this huge influx of funding to the states? This panel will help attendees unravel the details of BEAD funding and provide suggestions for strategies to engage with state officials on their broadband plans.
