- Rural Broadband Coverage and Feasibility Study (2018)
This project focuses on a 4-county region including Clinton, Lycoming, Northumberland, and Union counties and will identify inadequate broadband access within the 4-county region and focus efforts to expand rural broadband access as an economic engine to replace a portion of the economy lost by the coal impacts.
- Tri-County Rural Broadband Expansion Project (2019-2020)
This project will address the lack of rural broadband infrastructure in the three (3) participating counties of Mifflin, Juniata, and Perry County. It will also create interest from multiple providers, thereby creating a competitive environment for broadband access. Upon success, this model can be replicated and expanded to the entire SEDA-COG region, as well as across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
- 4-County Rural Broadband Expansion Project (2019-2022)
SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG), in cooperation with Clinton, Lycoming, Northumberland, and Union counties have been awarded funds from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) POWER 2020 funds for $2,500,000 that would, in part, provide funding for reimbursable grants to incentivize ISP’s in expanding their service areas into the unserved/underserved rural regions of the four counties. Total project costs for each county will be $1,500,000.
