Grow your future in the beautiful mountains, deserts, and national parks of Utah. Join Utah’s poverty-fighting network in working towards digital equity in Rural Utah.
Members will alleviate the causes and conditions of poverty by creating lasting digital equity tools and resources to increase broadband access and decrease broadband cost burden in rural areas of Utah. This includes conducting needs assessments, planning, and fundraising.
The goal of this project is to create lasting digital equity tools and resources to increase broadband access and decrease broadband cost burden in rural areas of Utah.
This goal will be achieved through developing sustainable resources to provide ongoing resources to Community Action Agencies in Rural Utah to enhance current digital equity work and creating tools that measure the impact of digital equity efforts for agencies, stakeholders, and the public. The resources developed will fill gaps in services that are identified by stakeholders in broadband equity planning and through front-line staff at these local agencies.
