Alabama Anchor Institution/Middle Mile Program


The Alabama Anchor Institution/Middle-Mile Program (AIMM or AIMM Program) is a subaward program that will provide grants to support the deployment of middle-mile broadband infrastructure to anchor institution facilities (such as higher education, rural hospital, government, and public safety facilities) with an identified need for service, while facilitating the deployment of last-mile broadband infrastructure in unserved areas of Alabama. Through the AIMM Program, ADECA intends to make necessary investments in broadband infrastructure resulting in the construction and operation of middle-mile fiber networks providing service to anchor institutions (Anchors or Anchor Institutions) with an identified need and facilitating last-mile broadband deployment and operations in unserved areas, thereby supporting the improvement and expansion of broadband network access to the citizens of Alabama.
