Blandin Community Broadband Program Update

From the Blandin Foundation

As the rural broadband landscape transforms, so too is our broadband programming. While Minnesota plans for federal investments in digital equity and adoption, we will be exploring the ways we can adapt to make sure rural community interests are centered and supported. As we grow into a new chapter of our work, we will be phasing out existing broadband programming and grantmaking. Our October gathering will also mark the final broadband conference hosted by Blandin Foundation.

Big changes are on the horizon for broadband in rural Minnesota and Blandin Foundation remains committed. Digital access and literacy are essential to rural opportunity and prosperity, and we want to make sure our work is evolving with the needs of your community.

We look forward to celebrating at the October conference our big broadband milestones and dreaming together of a digitally equitable future as we reflect, recharge and inspire new generations of champions.
