Federal Funding for Broadband and Education

Some folks at the Blandin Foundation were able to get a presentation from Sara George and Michael Diedrich from the MN Department of Education on Federal Fends for broadband. They started with a nice background on equity and the need for grants and then dig into the nitty gritty of how these grants are awarded. In the broadband world, I think we’re used to competitive grants many of the education grants are based on formulas.

It’s interesting from any perspective but especially interesting if you are involved with a school or school district…
