What is the National Broadband Resource Hub?


The National Broadband Resource Hub (NBRH) is a free online community for government leaders and nonprofits working to expand broadband access and affordability to build a strong digital future. 

Local government and nonprofit leaders are perfectly positioned to chart innovative, community-driven solutions for broadband inclusion – but too often, these leaders are under-resourced. Our mission is to empower leaders with the necessary tools and resources to make broadband affordable and accessible for every community.

Through the generous support of the Ford Foundation and Schmidt Futures, the Hub provides an expertly curated and publicly-available resource library, a collaborative community platform for local leaders, and customized assistance from broadband experts, free of cost.

  • The Resource Library brings together hundreds of broadband guides, how-to’s, reports, and more, curated by broadband experts. The Library is a living collection, and will continue to grow as new resources are developed by trusted institutions and organizations.
  • The Community Conversations forum brings together government and nonprofit leaders to connect with each other and share their experiences and best practices. By minimizing the barriers to connecting with peers regionally and nationally, leaders are empowered to collaborate and share knowledge across governments and nonprofits.
  • For those looking for more in-depth support, customized advisory services are available at no cost through the Help Desk, which allows government leaders to book time with experts to discuss tailored solutions for broadband questions.

We are grateful to the many stakeholders who have engaged with us to shape the design of the Hub over the past several months. This site is currently in beta, and we would love your feedback as we continue to build the Hub. Follow us on social media and sign up to receive email updates for future Hub developments.
