Digital Equity Capacity Grant

The State Digital Equity Capacity Grant Program is designed to foster digital equity through the enhancement of digital literacy and the promotion of online privacy and cybersecurity. The grant aims to address the digital divide by supporting projects that ensure all individuals, especially those in underrepresented populations, have the capacity for full participation in the digital economy and society. The program's objectives include improving access to broadband technology, making online public resources and services more accessible and inclusive, enhancing digital literacy, raising awareness of online privacy and cybersecurity, and increasing the availability and affordability of consumer devices and technical support.
