Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement announcing that U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development has awarded $3 million for broadband in Scott County:

“Broadband is a vital tool for economic development and expanding opportunity. This funding for Scott County Telephone Cooperative will provide a tremendous boost, connecting hundreds of homes and businesses to reliable Internet access and aiding our region’s economy.”


Scott County Telephone Cooperative received $3 million through Rural Development’s Community Connect grants to construct a Fiber-to-the-Premises over-lash to upgrade current broadband infrastructure in the Dungannon area. The project will benefit 592 customers.

Griffith wrote a letter of support on behalf of the grant application.
