U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Minnesota State Director Colleen Landkamer today announced an investment of $10 million to bring high-speed internet access to people living and working in rural Minnesota. Today’s investments include funding from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which provides a historic $65 billion to expand reliable, affordable, high-speed internet to all communities across the U.S.
“It’s important to ensure that people with all backgrounds and experiences have access to opportunities for building brighter futures in rural America,” Landkamer said. “Today’s funding is going to connect nearly 3,400 rural people, businesses, farms and schools with high-speed internet that will connect them to new markets and educational tools for generations to come.”
