Broadband Advisory Council Meeting – VATI Grant Administration Process

January 18, 2022

On Friday, January 21, the Broadband Advisory Council will meet to review the recent Virginia Telecommunication Initiative grant cycle, receive updates on the new statewide broadband availability map, and learn more about the Virginia Telecommunication Initiative (VATI) grant administration process between DHCD and local governments.

The Department of Housing and Community Development’s Office of Broadband has received questions and comments from local government elected officials and staff around Virginia about how funds awarded through the VATI process are managed. This upcoming meeting will be a great opportunity to share how the funds are actually distributed.
