SDHC’s Digital Inclusion Project

SDHC launched a Digital Inclusion Project on February 9, 2021, to help address the “digital divide” between households with access to technology and the internet and those who do not have access. The “digital divide” adversely affects households with low income and reflects inequities in the abilities of these households to access the internet. SDHC’s Digital Inclusion Project supports SDHC’s commitment to equity and inclusivity, as stated in SDHC’s Strategic Plan.

The FCC has awarded a $230,000 grant to SDHC through the FCC’s “Your Home, Your Internet” pilot program to support awareness, outreach and assistance for assistance for households to apply for the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program.
