As a long-time technology leader in Southern and Eastern Kentucky, The Center for Rural Development is proud to be a partner of the Kentucky Wired I-Way broadband network.

Survey of Federal Funding for Broadband
Noon / Thursday, Oct. 15
Deploying fiber rich infrastructures in local communities is an expensive proposition and meeting those costs often requires a variety of creative applications. This webinar will cover the range of often unknown federal funding options available for local community broadband projects using a variety of creative approaches, from serving your schools to partnering with rural healthcare establishments and how to uncover resources in your community that can serve as assets in funding applications.

To help communities and providers prepare, the Finance and Administration Cabinet has contracted with CTC Technology and Energy to offer a series of free webinars. CTC has also created guidebooks and other materials that you can download from  We encourage you to participate in as many of the webinars as possible.

The KentuckyWired infrastructure project is unlike any other seen in Kentucky in the last 50 years. Broadband, now considered an essential utility service, will leapfrog Kentucky’s dismal connectivity and slow speeds to some of the fastest and highest capacity service in the U.S. – all with the potential to lower consumer costs and improve cell phone coverage as well. Get your community ready!
