County Administration


Chesterfield County has been awarded a grant through the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development’s Virginia Telecommunication Initiative (VATI) in the amount of $755,523 to support the county’s partnership with All Points Broadband and Dominion Energy to develop broadband availability countywide.

 

The award, the second-highest scoring application in this grant cycle, will make it possible for Chesterfield and its partners to develop the infrastructure necessary to bring broadband service to currently unserved areas of the county.

 

“Chesterfield is excited about this great news and about the opportunity to work with our partners to implement this grant,” said Deputy County Administrator Clay Bowles. “It will provide these citizens with what is nowadays a critical piece of infrastructure.”

 

In all, some 494 parcels, homes, and businesses across the county will eventually have access to service thanks to this grant award that otherwise would not have been available.
