Broadband expansion is bringing opportunity and resources to Idaho communities! Broadband can advance economic development, but its net impact depends on the digital readiness of communities. We invite you to connect with state-level decision-makers, offer insight on local needs, share solutions, and begin planning for accessing funding that enables the benefits of digitalization to reach all Idahoans.
University of Idaho Extension’s Digital Economy Program, in partnership with the Idaho Commission for Libraries and Idaho Commerce’s State Office of Broadband, invites you to participate in this workshop on:
- Understanding digital access and impacted populations as part of economic growth opportunities
- Networking and local coalition building to address digital access needs
- Updates from Idaho Department of Commerce and Idaho Commission for Libraries on the development of the State’s 5-year action plans for broadband and digital access
- Resources to assist rural communities in taking advantage of future funding opportunities for broadband expansion and digital access
