Blandin Foundation stands with Minnesota’s rural leaders and communities as they create and claim futures that are resilient, vibrant and connected.  Abundant and robust access to the Internet (broadband), and the digital literacy skills necessary to take full advantage of this access, are essential as communities seek to compete and thrive in a digitally-connected world.

Since making rural broadband use and access a focus in 2003, Blandin Foundation has partnered with leaders in nearly 70 communities and 110 organizations across the state.  Two objectives are core to the hundreds of projects that have emerged from this work:

  • Sustainable broadband adoption
  • Enriched quality of life and place

Through the Blandin Community Broadband Program, the foundation extends its focus through 2016 with up to $1.5 million in grants and technical support available to rural Minnesota communities.
