Rural broadband funding aiding Missourians

The head of USDA Rural Development in Missouri says they continue to make increasing access to high-speed internet a priority for rural residents.

State Director Kyle Wilkens says they are encouraging entities to apply for funds through the ReConnect Program, which was made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. “About 72 percent of rural residents have moderate or high-speed broadband,” he said. “The goal is to increase this number so that all people, regardless of where they live, have access.”

He tells Brownfield the USDA will soon initiate a fourth round of funding.
