The Institute for Local Self Reliance, a great resource for community broadband information and advocacy, has posted a new fact sheet discussing some creative financing methods for municipal fiber networks.
The fact sheet discusses 3 particular financing methods that may be available to communities looking to build networks.
1. Local Improvement Districts
2. Local Utility Districts
3. Community Development Block Grants
If you would like to learn more about more traditional community broadband methods that have been used successfully, check out the recent CBAN Lunch and Learn webinar, "Show Me The Money", which was recorded earlier this month.
