From the Office of Broadband Development…
You are invited to attend the informational webinars on the 2017 Border to Border Broadband Infrastructure Grant; four webinars scheduled in June and July.
Need more information and have questions about the 2017 Broadband Grant Program? Beginning on June 26 and repeating three more times (July 7, July 10 and July 12), the Minnesota Office of Broadband Development (OBD) will host informational webinars/conference calls on the 2017 Border-to-Border Broadband Development Grant program to discuss the 2017 grant program, the application process and answer any questions.
The grant application is available for review now (click here for program details, grant information and access to the application). The grant application filing period opens on July 3, 2017.
The deadline for submitting applications is Sept. 11, 2017, at 4 p.m. Please note, however, if you are considering submitting a broadband grant application, you must contact wireline broadband providers in your proposed project area by July 31 to comply with the pre-application notification portion of the application process (or six weeks before you file your application, if you file before Sept. 11).
