Minnesota low income areas broadband grant webinar August 16

I know a lot of communities are making their plans for the infrastructure grants from the Office of Broadband Development. Those are grants for up to $5 million to deploy broadband to unserved and underserved areas. New this year, there is also funding available to increase availability for low income communities. The OBD is planning a session tomorrow to explain more…

Learn more about the newest addition to the Border-to-Border grant program, the $500,000 fund for projects that propose to expand the availability and adoption of broadband service to areas that contain a significant proportion of low-income households. The webinar will be held on Tuesday, August 16, from 1 to 2 p.m. Central Time. To register, contact David Thao at the OBD office at david.j.thao@state.mn.us or at 651-259-7442. You will receive the toll-free call-in number and online access instructions to be able to join the webinar. Please contact us before Tuesday at noon if possible to be sure you receive instructions before the webinar begins. We will also record the webinar and post the link on the Broadband Grants webpage.
