The city of Hamburg has received a $2 million grant from Arkansas Rural Connect Grant Program, according to Mayor Dane Weindorf.

The grant, requested last year, would help the local government and CableSouth Media 3 deploy broadband in the city.

As of Monday, Aug. 10, the grant agreement still had to be signed and returned before funds could be released, and Arkansas Department of Commerce’s Steven Porch reported that no presentation ceremony would be available because of social distancing.
