    Broadband Infrastructure Development Grant

    The Office of Science, Innovation and Technology (OSIT), created in NRS 223 in the Office of the Governor, is responsible for the planning, mapping and procurement of broadband service and managing broadband infrastructure development funding in connection with the Nevada Connect Kids Initiative. In 2017, the Legislature appropriated $2 million over the next two years in OSIT’s budget to fund the Nevada Connect Kids Initiative, pay for broadband development and improvements for schools and libraries, and to leverage E-rate dollars from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). In FY2018 and FY2019, OSIT has chosen to prioritize broadband infrastructure development grant funding for construction projects involving the expansion and deployment of fiber in conjunction with an application for Category One E-rate funding. OSIT will consider other applications that do not meet the above criteria on a case-by-case basis if funding remains. OSIT will not fund reoccurring costs.
