This morning the FCC announced their ACP Outreach grant recipients this morning and Illinois organizations received 7 grant awards, totaling over $1.8 million! This is wonderful news and a reflection of the great work being done to connect all Illinoisans. With these awards, we can work to sign up even more Illinoisans and bring ACP enrollment competitive with Midwestern neighbors. Today’s funding announcement is for National Competitive Outreach Program and Tribal Competitive Outreach Program.
