Thank you for providing public comments regarding the Kansas CPF Infrastructure Program application. The Kansas Office of Broadband Development (KOBD) greatly appreciates your participation in this process to ensure that grant funds are directed to areas lacking broadband services. Your public comment as a challenger enabled KOBD to direct grant funds to communities in need of broadband services and where broadband projects have not been planned with private funds. KOBD is excited about your efforts to expand broadband to underserved Kansans. Please note that each public comment will require its own submission that will be identified by the public comment number. Your input is critical to ensuring that all Kansans have access to high-speed broadband services in the future.


Closeout reporting will be required within 45 days of project completion. Project completion and submission of the closeout report are required prior to the final payment. Closeout reporting includes, but not limited to, the following:

  • Validation that the broadband infrastructure project build has been completed. This will provide service at the locations and service level speeds specified in the application
  • Grantees will be required to submit census block data, .kmz maps, speed test, latency, and network performance validation upon completion of the project
  • KOBD will require validation of as-built drawings versus the initial KMZ map submitted with the application through field validation and speed tests as services are turned up at specific locations
  • Grantees must complete/submit the required financial documents, legal agreements, and reports
  • The Kansas Office of Broadband Development reserves the right to amend the scope of grant awards or partially fund applications
