Implementing the Digital Equity Act

March 22, 2022

What Workforce and Education Advocates Need to Know about Digital Inclusion

The infrastructure legislation that Congress enacted last November made a huge new investment in digital skills via the $2.75 billion Digital Equity Act. For workforce development and adult/higher education advocates, this new funding provides many opportunities — but taking advantage of it will require familiarity with the digital inclusion world.

In this webinar, you’ll hear from a leading national organization that brings together 700+ local affiliates focused on various aspects of digital inclusion — broadband access, digital devices, and digital skills. Learn what skills advocates can bring to the table in digital equity conversations, and how to ensure that your state benefits fully from this exciting new legislation.
