This event brought 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 focused 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). Panelists include representatives from NLC’s Federal Advocacy Team and partners from the non-profit and private sectors.

Key takeaways:

  • The building blocks for establishing an effective digital inclusion strategy that best leverages the funds being made available through ARPA.
  • How municipalities can use ARPA’s State and Local Recovery Fund to close the digital divide.
  • How to increase wireless access in rural communities.
