This event will bring together a panel of digital inclusion and American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) experts to discuss how ARPA intersects with and impacts digital inclusion programs across the country. The panel will focus on how cities can use ARPA funding to promote digital inclusion in their cities and help their residents access digital inclusion programs, such as the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB). Attendees will hear the panelists’ perspectives, and the event will conclude with a Q&A opportunity. Panelists include representatives from NLC’s Federal Advocacy Team and partners from the non-profit and private sectors.
