WASHINGTON, March 2, 2010 – The Commerce Department announced broadband investments in Washington and Ohio this week.

Commerce Secretary Gary Locke on Monday announced an $84 million grant to help improve education and healthcare in Washington state. The grant aims to bring high-speed Internet access to more than 100 community institutions such as libraries and government agencies.

The funds will enable the Northwest Open Access Network, known as NoaNet, to deliver new and enhanced broadband capabilities to some of the more remote regions of the state by adding 830 miles of fiber and eight new microwave sites to their existing high-speed network.

The Washington project plans to directly connect the Jamestown S’Klallam tribal center, library and clinic, and the Shoalwater tribal center and clinic, as well as provide connection opportunities for the Makah tribal center and clinic.

In Ohio, a Recovery Act investment aims to bridge the technological divide and increase economic opportunities in vulnerable and low-income communities in the Ohio regions of Cleveland, Akron, and Zanesville.
