MACC created the PEG/PCN Grant Fund in 1999 as a part of the cable franchise with AT&T Broadband (now operating as Comcast). MACC receives funds from Comcast and Frontier to provide grants for Public, Education, and Government (PEG) Access and for users of the Public Communications Network (PCN).
Grants are available for capital support for Designated Access Providers and for operating and/or capital support for PCN Users.
Only local government agencies within the physical boundaries of the MACC Franchise Area are eligible to apply for grants.
The MACC Commission uses a citizen committee to help review grant applications to determine eligibility and merit. The Commission makes the final decision on grant awards.
