The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) is making available $41,931,595 in CDBG-CV funding to eligible local governments to prepare for, prevent, or respond to the health and economic impacts of COVID-19. This public notice is to solicit citizen comments on the proposed projects and applications at the public hearing on February 9, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. CST in the Jackson County Board of County Commissioners board room located at 2864 Madison Street Marianna, FL 32448.

Jackson County is proposing an application for Middle Mile Network Broadband Services for Low-and moderate-income areas of Jackson County and will be requesting $4,084,103. The County will develop the infrastructure for the middle mile, the backbone of the broadband network. Due to the CDBG-CV priority on low- and moderate-income areas, this project will focus on these areas in the county and leverage other funding sources to complete the network.
