The Office of Digital Equity and Literacy is working to ensure that all North Carolinians can afford a high-speed internet subscription and have the devices and skills necessary to participate in the digital economy. We are creating a comprehensive North Carolina Digital Equity Plan with significant feedback from individuals, organizations, and communities across the state that have been excluded from digital opportunity. The five-year plan identifies digital equity needs and recommends solutions.
Read the Draft State Digital Equity Plan
The draft plan is posted below and was available for public comment through Tuesday, Jan. 2 at noon. We are integrating this feedback into the plan to submit to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration for review and approval.
As a part of public comment for the North Carolina Digital Equity Plan, we are continuing to collect information about all organizations offering services that help people get online across the state. We want to learn about organizations, businesses, and programs that support internet affordability, access to computers and digital devices, digitals skills and literacy, tech support, and free Wi-Fi. We will publish this information publicly and use it to identify assets and gaps in the final North Carolina Digital Equity Plan.
