Governor Northam Announces $2 Billion Public-Private Broadband Investment

Good things happening!
Governor Northam announced that Virginia has received a record number of local and private sector applications to match state broadband investments, putting the Commonwealth on track to become one of the first states to achieve universal broadband access by 2024. Virginia anticipates more than $2 billion in total broadband funding, thanks to local and private-sector matching funds that go beyond the $874 million in state appropriations since the Governor took office in 2018.

“Broadband is as critical today as electricity was in the last century,” said Governor Northam. “Making sure more Virginians can get access to it has been a priority since I took office, and the pandemic pushed us all to move even faster. Virginia is now on track to achieve universal broadband by 2024, which means more connections, more investments, easier online learning, and expanded telehealth options, especially in rural Virginia.”

The Virginia Telecommunication Initiative is the Commonwealth’s broadband program. It was started in 2017 to fund public-private partnerships to extend broadband service to areas unserved by an internet service provider. When the most recent application round closed last month, the program received 57 applications from 84 localities, requesting $943 million to connect more than 250,000 Virginia homes and businesses. These applications leverage $1.15 billion in private and local matching funds. The Department of Housing and Community Development is reviewing applications and expects to award the funds by the end of the year.

Virginia has taken dramatic steps on broadband since Governor Northam took office in 2018, as Virginia’s first rural Governor in a generation. He set out a clear goal: achieve universal access to broadband within 10 years. The goal was bold, as Virginia’s broadband program was investing just $4 million a year and 660,000 Virginians did not have access to high-speed internet.

Since then, Governor Northam and the General Assembly have awarded $124 million in grants to connect more than 140,000 homes, businesses, and community organizations. The Virginia Telecommunication Initiative has awarded 39 projects in 41 different counties, supported by over $94 million in matching private and local funds. Along with private investment and federal broadband grants, the Commonwealth has reduced the digital divide by 65 percent. Plans accelerated further in August, when Governor Northam and the General Assembly allocated $700 million in American Rescue Plan funding to broadband, moving the original goal for achieving universal access to 2024.

“Ensuring that rural Virginians have access to broadband is the number one way we can make sure they have equal access to the economic, educational, and health opportunities that broadband provides,” said Broadband Advisory Council Vice-Chair Delegate Roslyn Tyler. “No Virginian should be left behind. Thanks to Governor Northam’s commitment to get universal broadband done, we’re seeing record levels of public and private sector matching funds, and we’ll have this critical infrastructure available to all Virginians more quickly than we imagined.”

“Broadband a vital resource for communities across the Commonwealth,” said Broadband Advisory Council Chair Senator Jennifer Boysko. “Broadband access allows our citizens to connect to their workplaces, schools, and doctors, and broadens their opportunities and choices about where to live and work. The Northam administration’s investment in broadband, paired with these matching funds, will get universal broadband access to Virginians in record time.”

The overwhelming response to this year’s Virginia Telecommunication Initiative grant round demonstrates that Virginia has built an innovative and successful model for bridging the digital divide.

One of the most important duties of the General Assembly is the selection of judges. On Friday, it was my great honor to join Judge Lorrie Sinclair Taylor and to speak at her formal swearing in ceremony. Judge Sinclair Taylor is the first Black woman (or man) in the history of Loudoun County to serve as a judge. It was held in the historic chambers in Leesburg, with family, community leaders, friends and colleagues. I am so very pleased and grateful to have her serving our community! Join me in wishing her a hearty congratulations!

Governor Northam COVID-19 Briefing | August 5, 2021

Watch Governor Northam’s briefing here. https://www.facebook.com/GovernorVA/videos/2157114861106757
From his press release:
Governor Ralph Northam today announced that Virginia will require its state workers to show proof that they are fully vaccinated or be tested for COVID-19 every week. This policy will impact approximately 122,000 employees and will go into effect on September 1.

Governor Northam’s action comes as the highly transmissible Delta variant is driving up cases across the Commonwealth and around the country, primarily among unvaccinated people. Nearly 73 percent of Virginia adults have had their first shot, and 54 percent of all Virginians are fully vaccinated against the virus, which is higher than most states.

“The only way to end this pandemic is to for everyone to get vaccinated against COVID-19,” said Governor Northam. “As head of state government, we have a responsibility to lead by example and ensure the safety of our employees and the people they serve. The three vaccines are safe, effective, free, and widely available, and I strongly urge every eligible Virginian to get their shot. The time for waiting is over.”

Virginia judge rejects push to block protections for transgender students

All students deserve to feel safe and included at school. Today the judge agreed! I was proud to carry the bill along with Delegate Marcus Simon that directed the VDOE to create these policies and to serve on the task force to develop these guidelines to protect our transgender students. Thank you Mark Herring!

A judge in Lynchburg ruled conservative groups and parents don’t have standing to challenge the state school board’s inclusive transgender policies.

Senator Boysko, I have reached out to your office several times in regards to an issue my spouse and I are having with unemployment since March 2020 due to states not communicating properly, can you please contact me back so that we might finally resolve this issue??
https://youtu.be/8PbjxU-Db3w Keep trying to Pimp MINORS OUT FOR MONEY it’s going to catch up to YOU ! God BLESS.
Would love to have you weigh in on the suggestions in the linked thread for how and where to build bridges across the Potomac between NoVA and MD. Even better if you'd be interested in sharing said suggestions with your colleagues :) https://www.facebook.com/groups/3000149976878900/permalink/3125415381019025/?comment_id=3125428437684386
Considering you line your pockets in perverted socially constructed CULT MONEY while you turn your head knowingly IGNORING THE OBVIOUS I’d say you are pretty excited about this. There shouldn’t be 1 little Girl in this state begging for privacy and safety and NOT 1 Parent getting ignored for pointing out the obvious REALITY Y E T your club has been LYING & doing exactly that since Day 1 How many kids do you know that have wrong ge****ls by accident ? How many genders was it again you said there was ? How many little Girls attempting awareness in being violated, threatened and stripped of rights have you IGNORED? How many Parents on the books in Va being stripped of rights while you ignore their cry’s for help ?
Senator, can you please verify that you are not taking per diem while working from home? Thank you.
Good luck this week with SB5034. Guide the bill through with NO further exclusions!
Hi Jennifer. My insurance is telling me they don't know about the $50 insulin cap for Virginians. Can you please help me?
Thank you, Senator Boysko, for hosting the Teacher Town Hall with the LEA today! We appreciate your public service!
Can this get fixed?
I would like to encourage you to message the Governor to order a shelter-in-place for Virginia..
