Home Stretch for Difficult to Serve Properties program aims to aid those whose homes might be located a significant distance from any existing internet provider, or where there are challenges for installation.  The FY24 Difficult to Serve Properties Grant Program will provide up to $1,100,000 to local county jurisdictions to assist with the capital construction costs related to the installation of broadband service to premises that have difficulty obtaining service due to their remoteness, distance from broadband infrastructure or other geographic issues that may discourage an ISP from delivering broadband service.

The Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is accepting applications from county jurisdictions who will be responsible for developing a sub-grant program with an ISP partner or partners for the installation of service. The maximum amount of funding per location is $8,000. 

To submit address information please include your name, contact telephone number and email address along with the physical address to by December 1, 2023.
