Ariz. college, tribe to benefit from federal funds

A community college and American Indian tribe in northern Arizona will benefit from federal funds to expand opportunities for distance learning and broadband access.

Jonathan Adelstein oversees the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development utilities program.

He will visit Coconino Community College on Tuesday to present the school with a $300,000 grant for distance learning.

From there, he’ll join the USDA’s state director on the Havasupai reservation to announce a $2.2 million broadband project. The reservation lies deep in a gorge off the Grand Canyon.

The USDA’s utilities program invested more than $700 million in rural Arizona communities during fiscal year 2010.
