Gov. Wolf Announces Pennsylvania Receiving $6.6 Million to Make Broadband Accessible for All

Governor Tom Wolf announced that Pennsylvania is receiving $6.6 million from President Joe Biden's "Internet for All" initiative, these are the first funds to be awarded of the more than $100 million to be managed by the Pennsylvania Broadband Authority.

"Pennsylvania's lack of affordable, accessible broadband is one of the biggest challenges holding our economy back," said Gov. Wolf. "This $6.6 million is the beginning of a generational change waiting for Pennsylvanians. With guidance from the Pennsylvania Broadband Authority, distribution will be carefully targeted for guaranteed progress."

Kevin Gallagher, senior advisor to the U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, joined Governor Wolf in his Reception Room at the Capitol today for the announcement.

"Pennsylvanians understand that unequal access to the Internet means unequal access to educational, economic and healthcare services and opportunities," Sec. Raimondo said. "These grants will put Pennsylvania on the path to equitably achieve high-speed Internet service for all residents. I commend Governor Wolf for his commitment to the 'Internet for All' initiative to provide digital equity across Pennsylvania."

Speakers include:
Governor Tom Wolf
Kevin Gallagher, Special Advisor, U.S. Department of Commerce
Brandon Carson, Executive Director, PA Broadband Authority
Dr. Postupac, Superintendent, Western Beaver County, Blackhawk
