Simplifying Complexity to Help Communities Close the Digital Divide

As a trusted broadband consulting partner, GrantWorks works alongside municipal governments, service providers, and state agencies to simplify the complexity of broadband federal funds project management. From strategic planning to fiber deployment, we facilitate reliable, affordable internet connection to bridge the digital divide and improve the quality of life in your communities.

The recently enacted Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) has introduced significant funding for broadband development to bridge the digital divide and ensure all Americans have access to reliable, high speed, affordable internet. This is in addition to broadband funding available through state and federal programs, such as the American Rescue Plan Act, which improve economic resiliency, increase access to healthcare services, and enrich educational experiences.

GrantWorks has an entire department dedicated to the management and oversight of broadband grants. We work with state, local, and tribal governments, state broadband offices, economic development organizations, industrial development agencies, and internet service providers (ISPs).


Our Broadband Services include:

  • Time-sensitive and critical technical support to identify unserved and underserved broadband coverage areas
  • Assistance in the procurement of optimal broadband providers to construct open and accessible public broadband infrastructure
  • Assistance in leveraging allocated state or federal funds to secure other funding sources
