Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe announced $9.844 million in broadband accessibility grants that will help build new broadband infrastructure in parts of 13 Tennessee counties including Cumberland County. The grants are the result of the Tennessee Broadband Accessibility Act, Haslam’s 2017 legislation to increase broadband to more Tennesseans and offset the capital expenses of deploying broadband in areas that currently lack access. The grants will provide broadband service to more than 5,000 locations in counties across the state. The grant recipients include $76,714 to Volunteer First Services to serve the Sunset Ridge community in Cumberland County.
