Many students are learning online this semester and Kentucky Lieutenant Governor Jacqueline Coleman is wanting to help families pay for internet service.

There are an estimated 32,000 Kindergarteners through 12 students in the state who do not have internet access in their homes.

The "Last Mile" program will dedicate 8 million dollars to connect those children to their lesson plans.

According to the Lieutenant Governor, the goal is to provide high-speed internet service for all k-12 students in low-income homes and no more than $10.00 per month for the next 2-3 school years.

More information on how to apply will be released in the coming days.
