It’s been a great day of broadband conversations around the state. Three regional broadband conferences happened today and I’ll post on each separately. (There will be eight regional meetings leading up to statewide fall conference Oct 12-14.)
The conference set up presentations and conversation related to the following questions:
- Where do broadband service gaps exist in Southwest Minnesota?
- What finance tools do local governments have to support broadband infrastructure?
- What state and federal grant programs are out there and how do we access them?
There was a tremendous amount of info shared on funding availability.
Here are the harvest notes from the session.
