Sign up for our webinar on May 7th!

USDA Rural Development State Directors Jack Smith (AZ), Sallie Clark (CO), Eric Vigil (NM) and Telecommunications General Field Representative Brian Smith will host a webinar focused on the second application window of FY2020 for the Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) Grant Program.

Rural Development is making $71.7 million in grants available under the Distance Learning and Telemedicine Grant program. This program helps rural communities use telecommunications-based audio and video equipment to connect teachers, students, medical providers and rural residents with each other and the world. Applicants who provide educational or health care services to rural communities through telecommunications facilities are eligible to apply. Applications will be scored, reviewed and selected on a competitive basis.

This webinar will inform participants about the changes in the program from the first window, review major eligibility and regulatory requirements of the program, and provide guidance on how to submit a successful grant application.  There will also be time for participants to ask specific questions about the program or the application process.
