The Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program has issued more than $1.35 billion in funding, according to a National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announcement Wednesday.

The latest round of funding awarded $602 million to 23 tribal projects, the largest single distribution yet from the program's $1.98 billion pool of funding.

Mitch Landrieu, senior White House adviser in charge of implementing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, called the announcement a "huge milestone" in an interview this afternoon with Tribal Business News.
