Envisioning an Equitable, Inclusive, Connected America

Future Proofing

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) awarded a grant to Zayo Group, LLC for $48 million through its Enabling Middle Mile Broadband Infrastructure (Middle Mile) Program for infrastructure in Oregon as well as parts of Nevada and California. The project will build 645 miles of fiber and new 180-foot towers to expand fixed wireless and mobile 5G broadband.

Connecting Tribes

NTIA awarded a $15.5 million Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program (TBCP) grant to the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation to connect over 300 households, and a $6.9 million grant to the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon to connect more than 900 households and Tribal community anchor institutions.

Network Knowledge Dissemination

The State Broadband Office (SBO) used NTIA Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Initial Planning Funds to conduct an Oregon Tribal Broadband Training in Eugene on August 7 through 10, 2023, specifically for Tribes to learn from experts on building and running Tribal digital networks.

Public Engagement

Under Office of Internet Connectivity and Growth's (OICG) BEAD Initial Planning Process, Oregon conducted 12 in-person community engagement meetings to raise awareness of BEAD and Digital Equity Programs across the state, including in the communities of Roseburg, Baker City, The Dalles, Tillamook, and Klamath Falls. More than 200 Oregon residents attended the meetings.


Oregon conducted significant outreach to encourage location challenges to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) National Broadband Map. Accurately charting these locations is integral to the state’s ability to accurately deploy its BEAD funding.
