ReConnect 3: Time to Play Defense

March 15, 2022

Vantage Point encourages all providers to be diligent in the challenge phase of ReConnect 3, as there may be need to “play defense” to prevent awarding funds for areas already served.

The application period for ReConnect 3 closed on March 9; and USDA has already begun releasing Public Notices of applications received. After each Public Notice, there is a 45-day window for other carriers to submit a challenge to that individual application.

Troy Eilts, Sr. Analyst on Vantage Point’s Consulting team, explains more about the process, what to expect, and what all providers – even if they did not apply for ReConnect funds should watch for.

For additional information or assistance in this defensive positioning, please contact Troy via email or at 605-995-1830.
