Telecommuter Forward!

OverviewLogo of Telecommuter Forward!

Through its many outreach and planning efforts throughout the state, the PSC's Wisconsin Broadband Office encourages coordination and partnership between telecommuting stakeholders by certifying local communities as being Telecommuter Forward!​.

Created by 2017 Wisconsin Act 342, Telecommuter Forward! is a voluntary program for local units of government (city, village, town, or county) to signal that the political subdivision supports and commits to promote the availability of telecommuting options.

​Model Resolution

The PSC has created a model resolution that satisfies the minimum requirements under Wis. Stat. § 196.5045​ to assist communities in this effort.

Apply for Certification

If a city, village, town, or county wishes to apply, complete the Telecommuter Forward! Ce​rtification application. After an internal application review process is complete, PSC staff will reach out with more information on next steps.​
