State awards funds for Casey County broadband expansion

Governor Beshear presented a check for more than $1 million recently, which will expand high-speed internet access to 290 households and businesses in neighboring Casey County.

The broadband funds come from a bipartisan agreement signed into law by Gov. Beshear in April 2021 that allocated $300 million in federal American Rescue Plan dollars to bring internet access to unserved and underserved communities across the commonwealth.

This funding pool also provided funds for the broadband expansion in the Jabez community of Russell County.
