Luján Announces $1 Million in Broadband Infrastructure to Tribal Communities in N.M.

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), Chair of the Subcommittee on Communications, Media, and Broadband, announced $1 million in grants from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (NTIA) Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program (TBCP) to the Pueblo of Jemez and Pueblo of Nambé. Each Pueblo will receive $500,000.

The Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program is a $3 billion grant program directed to Tribal governments for broadband deployment, broadband affordability, and digital inclusion on Tribal lands. The TBCP was created and funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Consolidated Appropriations Act, which was supported by Senator Luján. 

“Access to high-speed internet is necessary in today’s society— from telehealth to education, folks in rural and Tribal communities must receive equitable broadband access,” said Senator Luján. “That’s why I’m proud to welcome $1 million in broadband investments to my neighbors in the Pueblo of Nambé and Pueblo of Jemez. This significant investment will help bridge the digital divide for Tribal communities by establishing broadband infrastructure deployment across Tribal lands.”
