Local group receives stimulus funds

 

Congratulations to the Communities Connect Network (CCN)/EdLab Group for receiving a $4.1 million public computing center grant from the Department of Commerce NTIA Broadband Technology Opportunity Program (BTOP), as part of the federal stimulus funding.

 The grant will increase access to technology and essential services, develop job skills, and encourage broadband adoption for vulnerable residents across Washington State, including in Seattle. Public and non-profit computer access and learning centers will benefit, including our community centers and Seattle Housing Authority properties.
