NTIA Digital Equity Planning Grant Program. Deadline: 7/12/22. $60M Available.
Digital Equity Act Programs
Too many communities lack access to high-speed internet. Many more can't afford it or don't know how to use it. The divide between those who have internet access and those who don't is stark. To create an equitable economy, we all need access to reliable and affordable high-speed internet.
The Digital Equity Act provides $2.75 billion to establish three grant programs that promote digital equity and inclusion. They aim to ensure that all people and communities have the skills, technology, and capacity needed to reap the full benefits of our digital economy.
The following government entities may apply to the State Digital Equity Planning Grant Program:
Other U.S. Territories
