about Rural lisc Increasing digital equity in rural communities

All individuals and communities deserve the technology capacity to fully participate in our society, democracy and economy. For example, living wage jobs are increasingly difficult to secure without tech skills and access, telemedicine is not feasible on a limited data plan, and, schooling from a public WiFi location is not sustainable long-term. This is true across America – but in rural communities in particular. Rural LISC believes that in a resilient rural community, digital inclusion activities will focus on ensuring an affordable, robust broadband internet option, widely available internet-enabled devices, and, access to digital literacy training and technical support. Achieving digital equity requires intentional strategies and investments to reduce and eliminate historical, institutional and structural barriers to access and use technology. Rural LISC is working to address all sides of the digital equity equation through its programs.
