The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development on Thursday announced $67 million in state grants for internet providers to expand broadband coverage to tens of thousands of Minnesotans.

In total, 30 broadband expansion projects around Minnesota will receive grants from two broadband programs administered by the Department of Employment and Economic Development’s (DEED) Office of Broadband Development. Providers estimate the funding will extend new high-speed broadband access to more than 13,100 Minnesota homes and business in 26 counties, including in SW MN:

Kandiyohi County, Meeker Coop Light and Power: $533,959
Kandiyohi County, Meeker Coop Light and Power: $1,428,066
