The historic Harrison County Courthouse.

A resolution in support of Conterra Networks’ pursuit of a federal grant to help the county with its rural broadband expansion efforts was approved Tuesday by the Harrison County Commissioners Court.

According to the resolution, Conterra Networks plans to partner with the county and The East Texas Council of Governments (ETCOG) to accomplish the shared public policy goal by applying for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) grant. The grant has been requested through ETCOG. The agency has been helping the counties it serves connect with funding opportunities as an effort to improve regional broadband access.
