Legislative & Policy
From Next City:
During the presidential campaign last summer, Joe Biden released a “Plan for Rural America” calling for an investment of $20 billion to expand broadband internet access in rural communities, where, the plan noted, residents are 10 times more likely than urbanites to live without a high-speed internet connection. But even in America’s biggest cities, broadband access is not universal. Nor is it equitably distributed.
Last week, CLPHA Executive Director Sunia Zaterman and other leaders from public housing industry groups met virtually with HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge to share with the Secretary our priorities and goals for the new administration, and Zaterman discussed the meeting in an Affordable Housing Finance article.
