2021 Broadband Summit: Strategies for Accelerating Broadband Deployment

9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Audience: Policymakers

Deadline for Registration: June 8, 2021

Never has the case for broadband expansion been clearer: The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the digital divide and the need for rapid broadband infrastructure expansion. How can states and localities make best use of the resources available for broadband infrastructure and create a conducive environment for broadband expansion?

Please join the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond and The Pew Charitable Trusts for a broadband expansion summit on June 8, 2021, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Our objective is to highlight best practices states can use for broadband policy and innovative approaches to creating public-private partnerships for broadband infrastructure projects. Our program also features interactive breakout sessions for each state in the Fifth Federal Reserve District – Maryland, North and South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia – to discuss solutions for overcoming barriers to broadband expansion in each state.
