In case you missed it, Connect Americans Now (CAN) hosted a virtual briefing last week, “A Historic Opportunity: Maximizing Federal Programs to Permanently Eliminate the Digital Divide,” with a tremendous panel of leading voices in health care, education, affordable housing, agriculture and digital equity.
The panel discussed the urgency to ensure every American community has access to an affordable, reliable broadband connection and the digital devices and skills necessary for success in the 21st-century economy and classroom — and how lawmakers can help ensure federal programs follow an all-of-the-above approach to maximize the positive impact of resources targeted at eliminating the digital divide.
