HARRISBURG – With more Pennsylvanians working from home and more schools providing online education during the current pandemic, broadband access is a necessity. Rep. Pam Snyder of Greene, Fayette, & Washington Counties said her forthcoming bill would provide the vital infrastructure to ensure broadband access to all residents. Her measure would provide $50 million from the federal CARES Act to expand access to broadband internet through the creation of a grant program overseen by the PA Department of Community and Economic Development. DCED would determine unserved and underserved areas of the state and award grants under the program.
