8 Dec 2022
SANTA FE – The U.S. Treasury Department is injecting another $117 million into New Mexico’s efforts to expand broadband – enough to reach about 21% of the locations in the state that lack access to high-speed internet service, according to state estimates.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and U.S. Sen. Ben Ray Luján joined Colorado Gov. Jared Polis and federal officials to announce the new funding Thursday, available through the American Rescue Plan Act capital projects fund.
