Non-ARRA USDA funding for Erskine MN

Here’s the latest from a USDA press release

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced nearly $247.9 million in funding for telecommunications projects that will improve broadband service to rural residents and businesses in 11 states.

The awards included one Minnesota award. Garden Valley Telephone Company received a $34,177,000 loan. I haven’t been able to track down a ton more info on the loan – but I was able to find a service area for Garden Valley, which seems to center on Erskine, Minnesota.
