PROGRESS TOWARDS DIGITAL EQUITY IN NH
Digital access and skill have become increasingly important for so many aspects of everyday life, for people of all ages and all circumstances, especially for those who are English learners, elders, persons of color, veterans, disabled, low income, rural inhabitants, and incarcerated populations. NH’s digital equity funding can be used to address digital divide challenges, e.g., relating to access to affordable broadband, computers, digital skills and cyber safety skill development, technical support, multilingual tech support, and more.
The LRPC is working with New Hampshire’s digital equity experts in guiding the development of NH’s plan, and to encourage all who are interested in the region to help shape the plan. Over the next several months, a select team will be seeking public comment on vital elements including identification of digital divide barriers to improve economic and educational opportunity, healthcare access, and civic engagement.
You can learn about the many ways to become involved, share your insights and concerns, and help craft New Hampshire’s digital future at https://www.nhdigitalequity.org/ for many upcoming opportunities from an online survey and online forums to in-person meetings across the state.
We hope you’ll join us!
