Welcome to the Telecommunications Program Mapping Tool homepage! This tool serves three purposes. First, this tool will be used by existing borrowers or those interested in applying for funding under the Infrastructure Loan Program (Infrastructure Program), the Broadband Loan and Loan Guarantee Program (Broadband Program) and the Community Connect Grant Program (Community Connect) to draw their existing or proposed service area maps. This tool will also be used by RUS to post Public Notices of the proposed funded service areas for received loan applications and can be used by existing service providers to submit information regarding their service offerings. Lastly, this tool will be used by any state, local, or other entity that wishes to upload an authenticated map of existing broadband services.
In order to use this tool to create a map of your existing or proposed funded service areas, file a response to a published public notice filing, or upload an authenticated map of existing broadband services, you must register for an eAuthentication ID with Level 1 access.
