TSLAC awarded Broadband grant

The Texas State Library & Archives Commission was awarded approximately $8 million from the federal government’s Recovery Act Investments program, with nearly $3.7 million in matching contributions, that will allow the Texas State Library & Archives Commission to deploy the Technology, Expertise, Access and Learning for all Texans (TEAL) project. The TEAL project will provide greater broadband computer access at faster speeds by upgrading 125 public computer centers and establish approximately 30 new centers equipped with 2,200 new workstations. In addition to the more than 125 jobs TEAL estimates the project will create, it will “provide a foundation for economic growth and job creation for decades to come.” Read more from the White House.
