The Virginia Telecommunication Initiative (VATI) extends broadband service to currently unserved areas. VATI prepares communities to build, utilize, and capitalize on telecommunications infrastructure with the goal of creating strong, competitive communities. Consistent with the enabling legislation, DHCD will award the $19 million appropriation to eligible applicants, subsidizing construction costs and providing last-mile services to these unserved areas of the state.
 

VATI Applications

As detailed in the 2020 Virginia Telecommunication Initiative (VATI) program guidelines, DHCD will post electronic copies of all submitted applications to the agency website within 5 business days after the application deadline. Any private sector service provider wishing to request that DHCD deem a proposed project area as ineligible for VATI must submit a challenge with the information required in the Challenge Process section, no later than 5:00 pm on October 9, 2019. DHCD will have 30 business days to validate a challenge. Applicants will be notified if their proposed project area is being challenged. Applicants will have 15 business days from notification of a challenge to provide any additional information to DHCD. Please send challenges to vati@dhcd.virginia.gov
