The New Mexico Broadband Equity Fund application is now closed.
Groundworks New Mexico is hosting the New Mexico Broadband Collective, made up of a diverse group of funders, tribal, nonprofit, and government representatives across the state to support a statewide approach to ensuring that broadband services are available to all New Mexicans. Rural communities, Native communities, and other communities of color are most impacted by the lack of broadband connectivity. The Broadband Collective, which was established in March 2021, recognizes the necessity of a statewide approach to coordinate efforts to ensure all New Mexicans have access to broadband.
The Broadband Collective comprises various workgroups focused on: providing funding and technical assistance to support community and regional efforts; ensuring there is equitable and effective use of technology statewide; engaging in advocacy; and coordinating federal and state broadband resources and opportunities.
With the support and partnership of the New Mexico Foundation, the New Mexico Broadband Equity Fund will support efforts to secure broadband in hard-to-connect communities. You can support this fund by clicking the button below and selecting “New Mexico Broadband Equity Fund.”
