MBI is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the Municipal Digital Equity Planning Program!
The ability to engage in digital equity planning activities will be a critical step for municipal leaders and staff to build a broad understanding of how internet access, or lack thereof, affects residents of their community, and to develop actionable solutions to bridge the digital divide.
Specifically, the Municipal Digital Equity Planning activities will support municipalities in:
- Decision-making and investments related to services and infrastructure that will increase access, adoption, and usage of the internet for the populations most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Preparing to submit grant proposals to existing or forthcoming state or federal opportunities related to solving the digital divide.
Municipalities participating in this program will receive expert advisement from a network of prequalified consultants identified by the MBI.
