Broadband Funding for California Properties

Broadband Funding for California Properties

As an owner of a publicly supported housing development, you are now eligible for a state grant to offer affordable internet access to your residents, removing the financial barrier that keeps millions of Americans offline. The California Advanced Service Fund (CASF) Broadband Public Housing Account is available to low-income and publicly funded communities across California to help provide residents with free broadband service. Property owners can receive 100% of the capital costs to deploy a Wi-Fi network in their buildings.

As of March 7, 2024, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) voted to expand eligibility for the California Advanced Services Fund (CASF) Public Housing Account to additional California properties.

EducationSuperHighway is working with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF) to bring awareness to the California Advanced Services Fund (CASF) Public Housing Account. To learn more about the grant and the expanded eligibility, join us for our upcoming webinar:
