We are pleased to announce that the Public Service Commission-Wisconsin is now accepting applications for Broadband Expansion Grants for Fiscal Year 2014.

This is a new grant program adopted for the first time in the recent state budget, 2013 Wis. Act 20. Under this authority, the Commission may award up to $500,000 in grants during Fiscal Year 2014 to improve broadband communications services in Wisconsin.
