2023 ConnectHomeUSA - Understanding Broadband Mapping for HUD-Assisted Communities


March 07, 2023 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EST



The Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) National Broadband Map is used to identify internet service availability at individual locations nationwide. The accuracy of the data underlying the map is essential as states and tribes receive historical levels of funding to expand broadband access in underserved communities. The National Broadband Map will also determine where this funding may be used and the FCC has a challenge process for stakeholders to verify the accuracy of the location data. HUD-assisted communities should act now to ensure accurate data is in place for their communities before the upcoming challenge deadline!

During this webinar, FCC staff will provide an overview of the National Broadband Map, ongoing data collection efforts, and how ConnectHomeUSA communities and other HUD-assisted organizations can ensure the map accurately reflects broadband availability in their community.

This webinar is part of an ongoing series that aims to help ConnectHomeUSA communities, other HUD-assisted communities, and tribes achieve their goals in connecting households to affordable broadband service, devices, and digital literacy training.
