Senator Murray Announces Over $8 Million in Funding for Rural Broadband Access in Washington state

U.S. Senator Patty Murray, a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $8.6 million in funding to expand reliable, affordable, high-speed internet in Washington state. The funding comes from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which Senator Murray was a leader in passing, and will be administered through the Department of Agriculture’s ReConnect Loan and Grant Program.

“In the 21st Century, a reliable internet connection is absolutely vital. From telemedicine to competing in the global economy, families and small businesses need access to reliable high-speed internet,” said Senator Murray. “That’s why I fought tooth and nail to include record funding in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to expand connectivity across the country. For our rural communities especially, this funding is going to be a game-changer and I’m proud to bring it back home to Washington state.”
