Welcome to the Office of Broadband Access and Expansion (OBAE) Grant Application Portal.

Portal Overview
This portal is used by the OBAE to accept and process applications for grant funding and also communicate with the applicant. The portal provides a user-friendly approach to uploading the application and all attachments.

The portal does allow for updates or completion later, however, the application and required attachments must be uploaded before a submission is allowed.

Confidential Information
Grant applications and supporting documents are subject to release under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act (“IPRA”), NMSA 1978, Sections 14-2-1 et seq. An applicant who contends that its application materials contain confidential information must follow OBAE’s redaction and confidentiality request process. If an applicant submits unredacted application materials before OBAE approves a confidentiality request, OBAE will produce the unredacted materials in response to an IPRA request. Please click here for instructions about the process for filing redacted application materials.

Additional resources are available on the Pilot Program website, including the Application, Notice of Funding Opportunity, Interactive Broadband Map, and Scoring Guide.
