Strong Community Partnership Awarded Funds to Expand Fiber Internet to Unserved


On January 18, Governor Kelly announced that Iowa Tribe and their partners Rainbow, Doniphan County, and the City of White Cloud will receive nearly $1.5 million in grant funds to build a fiber network in the northeast corner of Kansas. The area met the grant application criteria, with 91% being considered “unserved” by broadband service. Upon completion, the Iowa Tribe Housing and the City of White Cloud, 125 locations, will receive the best broadband service available with a new fiber-optic network.
