2/13/20 - Connect Illinois - Broadband Infrastructure Funding

In 2019, Governor Pritzker and the Illinois General Assembly agreed to invest $420 million in the historic Connect Illinois broadband program. As the country’s largest competitive matching grant program, Connect Illinois seeks to extend critical high-speed internet access to homes, businesses, and community anchor institutions throughout the state.


The Illinois Office of Broadband recently opened the application window for the first $50 million in funding. In collaboration with University of Illinois Extension Services, the office will host a series of webinars to help potential applicants and other stakeholders understand the Connect Illinois program and the current funding round.
