ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - The Albemarle Broadband Authority is asking members of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors for $350,000 for one-time funding to support the expansion of access and affordability.

The request was made Wednesday, March 10, and would use $250,000 for short-term pandemic support to focus on an access and affordability program in rural and urban areas of the county.

The authority would also like to see $100,000 for the establishment of an office that would help professionally manage this work.

Supervisors should provide an answer to the request next week.
