Sacramento Coalition for Digital Inclusion

The Sacramento Coalition for Digital Inclusion is focused on creating more opportunities for digital equity in the Greater Sacramento Region.

Read the 2021 Action Plan

3 in 4 new jobs require high or medium digital skills

But residents of color are underrepresented in these high paying opportunities

Let's close the gap

Together, we have developed a Digital Inclusion Plan for Sacramento

This 2021 Action Plan focuses on specific outputs targeted to community needs to make measurable progress in ensuring full digital inclusion for our region's residents.

Our Strategies

Broadband Access & Adoption

Will support the expansion of broadband availability and subscribership to high-speed internet services in the Sacramento Region, including expanding access to unserved households, public access computing labs, and beyond public spaces.

Hardware Devices

Will focus on building a pipeline of free or low-cost technology equipment, such as computers, devices, etc., for ready access to low-income consumers.

Digital Skills

Will advocate for demand driven, skill-building investments to improve the lives of students, job seekers and community members to meaningfully engage in civic life.

Here are some of the resources informing development of the SCDI Plan:

National Digital Inclusion Alliance

The National Digital Inclusion Alliance is a unified voice for home broadband access, public broadband access, personal devices, and local technology training and support programs. NDIA is a community of digital inclusion practitioners and advocates.

Census Data Map

We created a map to show where households own computers and subscribe to broadband. The SCDI Preliminary Report contains printer-friendly versions of the map.
