Bingaman Announces $3.3 Million Federal Grant To Bring Broadband Access To Laguna

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman today announced that the Pueblo of Laguna will
receive a total of $3.3 million in federal funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to bring wireless broadband the area.

Laguna by far won the largest grant of the $8.9 million in funds awarded this year through this USDA initiative.

“This funding will allow Laguna to bring wireless broadband technology to the community,
allowing for fast Internet that could have a dramatic impact on economic development in the
region,” Bingaman said.

In addition to bringing wireless broadband to Laguna, the funding will aide in the renovation of the existing community center.
