Connecting Manistee Broadband Survey

We understand that both the access to and cost of the internet has impacted many households in our community. It is frustrating. But unfortunately, based on the State’s data, we are not eligible for funding to help us increase access and affordability. By taking this survey, you are helping us find solutions for Manistee County. Thank you for your help!
