Funding is intended for projects that will allow more equitable access to digital health resources for communities in Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

Partnering with diverse organizations, especially those that support state broadband initiatives or other digital equity efforts, including public libraries, community-based and faith-based organizations are encouraged to provide internet access across populations. This project award supports the purchase, installation, and upgrading of hardware or software and provide trainings that foster skills to find, retrieve, evaluate, interpret, utilize and share reliable online health information and understand related issues such as personal privacy online and the stewardship of health information.

  • Racial and ethnic minority populations
  • Sexual and gender minority populations
  • Populations reported below the Federal Poverty Level
  • Populations with limited access to medical care
  • Populations with physical and/or mental disabilities
  • Soldiers, Veterans and Military Families

Potential projects may include but are not limited to (this list is not meant to be all-inclusive):

  • Replicating the Georgetown University‚Äôs Harlem E-Project and bring together multiple partners to create a community network that improves access to high-speed, high-quality digital resources.
  • Replicating the SC Department of Education Mobile Wi-Fi program at a local level to  provide Wi-Fi access in low income neighborhoods in your community to serve as local hotspots for communities in need.
  • Replicating programs like Baltimarket to provide dedicated workstations to locate health and nutrition information as well as an interface to place online grocery orders to be delivered to a public facility like a library or community center in food desert communities.
  • Placing web-accessible computers in communities that are impacted by the digital divide and provide online access to health information for underserved populations or unaffiliated health professionals.
