64 applications for 2020 Border to Border broadband funding – did someone in your county apply?

Office of Broadband Development reports (via email)…

Sixty-four (64) applications for the 2020 Border-to-Border Broadband Development grant program were received by the September 30 deadline. The Office of Broadband Development has initiated the challenge process required by Minnesota law (Minn. Stat. 116J.395 subd. 5a) concurrent with its review of the applications. A list of the applications filed and instructions on how to file a challenge, if necessary, are available under the “Challenge Process” tab.  Any challenges must be submitted in writing by 4:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 4, 2020 to the Office of Broadband Development, 1st National Bank Building, 332 Minnesota Street, Suite E200, St. Paul, MN 55101.

I have added a column to their info adding counties served. Each are is presented differently (maps, address, census blocks…) so I’ve done my best. If you see an error, please let me know and I’ll fix it.

I’ll paste what I have below but I know it may not be as clean looking or useful as downloading the Word Doc.
