Meeker County has been engaged in broadband expansion for years. In  2017, Meeker County released a broadband feasibility study, with Blandin Foundation’s support. They released an update in 2018.

Meeker County will benefit from a MN State Grant awarded in 2021:

  • Meeker Cooperative Light & Power Association (Vibrant Broadband) – Lake Koronis – GRANT $41,927 This last mile project will serve approximately 28 unserved and seven underserved locations in Union Grove Township in Meeker County.

They will benefit from a MN Border to Border grant awarded in the last round. The project is small, but hopefully will start a quest for more improvement. Projected allocation of American Recovery Project ARP funds in Meeker is $4,503,764; broadband is one possible use.

Meeker County needs a major push to get to better broadband; they are code red.

Past grants:

  • 2019: Nuvera Communications, Inc. – Hutchinson W Project – GRANT $346,282
