Closing the Digital Divide in Sacramento
Digital Equity Program - 2020 Results
United Way California Capital Region and the City of Sacramento worked cooperatively with nonprofits on the front lines to address the digital equity needs of families in the city of Sacramento as it related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This program was funded under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
By working through this lens of equity—we prioritized the needs of those most impacted and vulnerable. With cultural responsiveness in mind, United Way partnered with several community organizations to provide:
- 949 laptops
- 266 hotspots (priority given to low-income households with children and senior citizens)
- Safe in-person digital literacy training to 115 applicants
