Strut Your Stuff ppt - Blandin Broadband Communities Grant presentattion - 9/28/16



Redwood County was selected in November of 2014 to be one of 10 Minnesota Communities/Counties to be in the Blandin Broadband Communities consortium.   On February 5, 2015, a county-wide meeting was held to discuss and identify challenge areas around broadband usage in Redwood County, and what our future might look like.   There were projects identified and then over the course of 2015 and 2016 there were three rounds of grant funding made available through the Blandin Foundation.   Based on the information gathered at the meeting, we applied for a series of 10 grants and were awarded all ten for a matching total from Blandin of nearly $90,000 that was invested in Redwood County!   Click here to view the results of our efforts over the past 24 months!

"Living in the Cities for four years made me appreciate the kind of lifestyle the rural area has to offer.  It is a wonderful place to raise a family, and people are not too busy to wave when passing by or just stop to visit.  I felt a strong desire to bring a form of quality of healthcare back to this area."

Dr. Kyle Pankonin, Lamberton
