Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program
As of 2023, close to 500,000 households are unserved or underserved by high-speed internet infrastructure and another 730,000 households face barriers related to a combination of affordability, adoption, device access and digital literacy. This means approximately 30% of Michigan households do not have an affordable, reliable high-speed internet connection that meets their needs.
Michigan received $1.559 billion in Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) funding to close the digital divide. The BEAD Five-Year Action Plan provides information on the implementation of the BEAD Program and how we are working towards universal availability for all Michiganders.
