Residents in three southwest Colorado counties will be connected to broadband internet services thanks to $6.3 million in federal funding.
Colorado U.S. Senators Michael Bennet (D) and Cory Gardner (R), along with U.S. Representative Scott Tipton (R-CO-3), today announced that the U.S. Department of Commerce has awarded $1.5 million to support business growth in rural Colorado.
"These grants provide critical funding to assist rural communities with workforce development and job creation efforts," Bennet said. "We will continue our work with the EDA in Delta and Montrose counties to assist communities that are struggling with job losses in the coal industry."
