Sherburn County has worked with the Blandin Foundation. They renewed their interest in broadband access in the last two years, certainly during the pandemic shut down. After being stagnant for a few years, they saw a leap of better broadband in the last year.

Projected allocation of American Recovery Project ARP funds in Sherburne is $18,858,711; broadband is one possible use.

Sherburne County has the opportunity to invest in broadband with federal funding. That would help them reach ubiquitous broadband and their renewed focus might make this the perfect time to do it. They are a code green community.
