Municipal Digital Equity Implementation Program

The intent of the Municipal Digital Equity Implementation Program is to enable municipalities who need funding to mobilize, start-up, and implement digital equity activities locally to access a one-time grant up to $100,000 per municipality to execute a project (or projects) defined in their Digital Equity Plan, Digital Equity Planning Charette, or pre-existing local digital equity plan or related document that MBI deems of sufficient standard.

Municipalities can select one or more focus areas for implementation:

  • Staff Capacity for Digital Equity
  • Wi-Fi Access and Innovative Connectivity Technology
  • Public Space Modernization
  • Connectivity for Economic Hardship
  • Digital Literacy
  • Device Distribution and Refurbishment
  • Education, Outreach, and Adoption
