Digital Equity Task Force Town Halls

The ConnectALL Office, in partnership with the New York State Library, has launched a Digital Equity Task Force. The Task Force will help guide the development of the State’s  Digital Equity Plan - a  roadmap for $1 billion of investments in internet infrastructure and digital equity programming over the next five years. Representatives from over a dozen State Agencies are working with community leaders to launch a series of virtual Town Halls, in five critical outcome areas: Education, Healthcare, Workforce and Economic Development, Civic and Social Engagement, and Accessibility of Government Services.
