US Ignite is pleased to announce the proposals accepted as part of our recent round of Application Development Awards announced opened for submission in August of 2018. The Application Development Awards provide up to ten thousand dollars in funding per proposal submitted and accepted from one of our Smart Gigabit Communities (SGC). This round of awards a total of eighty thousand dollars to improve community impacts and support local application developers, adding to previous rounds that have created a total of three hundred thousand dollars of investments in the development of local gigabit applications and services. Leaders in each of our Smart Gigabit Communities worked with development teams to identify the most promising gigabit applications in their regions. These awards are provided with generous support from the National Science Foundation through their ongoing support for the advancement of next-generation networks. Congratulations to each of the development teams and their communities.
