Due the Covid-19 pandemic, broadband internet was relied on more than ever by Americans. OGR went to work for a client seeking more federal appropriations to be dedicated to broadband.




OGR set up client meetings with staff on the House and Senate appropriations subcommittees requesting more funding for broadband. OGR also identified a Senate champion who submitted the request.




The meetings with staff and members resulted in a $60 million dollar increase in funding for broadband at a critical time.
