Connecting All Missourians

Connecting All Missourians

The Office of Broadband Development will carry out an extensive public engagement process as it plans for its Connecting All Missourians programs. These programs will be funded under the Digital Equity Act (DEA) and the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) program, both part of the Infrastructure, Investment, and Jobs Act (IIJA). It will inform the state’s plans for spending more than $100 million toward broadband deployment and more than $20 million toward addressing non-infrastructure barriers to full participation in the digital world.

Many Missourians are unable to take full advantage of the opportunities presented by the internet for reasons beyond availability of reliable high-speed internet access, which may include lack of familiarity with new technologies, inability to afford an internet-connected device, and the inability to afford internet service.

The upcoming Digital Demonstration Project Grant Program is a competitive grant program that will fund projects that allow the State of Missouri to better understand, develop, and implement programming that furthers the goal of digital equity. The results of this Program will inform the Missouri Digital Equity Plan, which must be submitted to the U.S. Department of Commerce to secure future federal funding.

Missouri’s Office of Broadband Development (OBD) has allocated $250,000 to the program from the State Digital Equity Planning Grant, which is funded by the 2021 Digital Equity Act and part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

FCC Broadband Mapping Opportunity

The Office of Broadband Development is encouraging Missourians to make sure their homes, businesses, and communities are correctly represented on newly released maps of broadband coverage in order to make sure those locations are eligible for future funding.

OBD is also interested in identifying areas with large-scale errors for targeted outreach and potential bulk challenges. If you see such areas on the map, or if your organization has access to data that could be used to establish large-scale challenges either in terms of where potentially broadband-serviceable locations are situated or what services are actually available at given locations, please contact us.
