USDA Distance Learning and Telemedicine Program Grant for Rural Communities

The Distance Learning and Telemedicine program helps rural communities use the unique capabilities of telecommunications to connect to each other and to the world, overcoming the effects of remoteness and low population density.  This program can link teachers and medical service providers in one area to students and patients in another.  To learn more about recently funded DLT projects, Rural Development has developed a map of recently funded DLT projects at:   https://ruraldevelopment.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=15a73830555645ae93d2fa773ed8e971
