The Broadband & USDA State Offices for Illinois & Missouri are co-hosting an upcoming webinar on the USDA Distance Learning and Telehealth Grant Program (DLT), on April 28, 2021, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM CST, which is currently accepting applications. USDA plans to make $44.5 million available in fiscal year 2021 for this program. Of this amount, $10.2 million is intended for projects that provide substance use disorder treatment services in rural areas. Eligible applicants for the program include local governments, nonprofits, and for-profit businesses.

The DLT program helps fund distance learning and telemedicine services in rural areas. This will increase access to education, training, and health care resources that are otherwise limited or unavailable.

The USDA Telecommunications General Field Representative for Missouri & Illinois will present on the current open grant cycle for the DLT Grant Program. Attendees will receive a general overview of the program, application highlights, and helpful suggestions in navigating the application process. The workshop will also provide updates on upcoming initiatives from the USDA Rural Development offices.

This event will be recorded and made available for those who are unable to attend.
