To create an ecosystem of digital equity and inclusion, the State of Illinois introduced complementary programming to pair with its ongoing $420 million capital broadband investment that, combined, seeks to ensure affordable in-home broadband service, access to personal computers, digital literacy training, and ongoing technical support. Illinois is working alongside public, private, nonprofit, and philanthropic partners to raise capital for and awareness of the digital equity challenges facing communities.
