Feds award $300K grant to Estes Park

ESTES PARK – The town of Estes Park is receiving a $300,000 grant to support flood recovery efforts, the U.S. Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration said Monday.

The grant will fund development of a plan aimed at greater job diversification and economic resiliency in the wake of flooding last September.

A key component of the grant supports developing a plan to make use of Estes Park’s existing fiber optic ring to deliver improved broadband services to the town and region.

“Using our existing fiber optic ring, this grant will help us develop a plan for regional broadband expansion,” said Estes Park Mayor Bill Pinkham in a statement. “That is a key component of improving and sustaining our local economy.”
