The Ho-Chunk Nation is one of six communities that were selected by Governor Tony Evers for the new Broadband Connectors Pilot program.
The program will help provide technical assistance to the communities when applying for federal, state, and private-sector broadband expansion funds. The other communities selected are Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, School District of Owen-Withee, Town of Cross, St. Croix County, and Fon du Lac County. The pilot program is intended to help WEDC and PSC to better understand what communities’ broadband technical assistance needs are. The communities that were selected based on criteria of already initializing broadband expansion, and the desire for these communities to expand broadband in underserved or unserved areas.
