Line Extension Customer Assistance Program
The Line Extension Customer Assistance Program (LECAP) is designed to support the extension of existing broadband networks to low-to-moderate income residents. For a subset of Virginians, broadband connections are not attainable because their home exceeds an internet service provider’s standard connection drop length from a roadway or easement containing telecommunications infrastructure. The cost incurred by home owners to extend broadband infrastructure to these locations, referred to as special construction costs, range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on the distance and cost to connect the location.
The Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development has created the LECAP Applicant Portal for households to apply for assistance! Click on this link to get more information and to apply for assistance.
