Matching grants of up to $25,000 to Washington nonprofit organizations, neighborhood groups, Parent-Teacher-Student Associations, business groups, and other community-based organizations in eligible locations for digital equity projects. Funding is intended to provide technology opportunities to local residents and communities – especially those who are historically underserved or underrepresented. Eligible projects benefit the residents of Seattle.
The barriers to digital equity disproportionately affect BIPOC residents, low-income households, limited-English speakers, older adults, and people with disabilities. These households are located primarily in South Central Seattle, South Seattle, West Seattle, and areas of downtown and Lake City. The COVID-19 pandemic has only intensified the need to address this disparity, as working from home, accessing vital resources, and online schooling have become the norm. Additionally, digital equity providers are impacted by the inability to provide classes, technical assistance, and supportive services in person.
Applicants should partner with organizations to deliver culturally relevant digital inclusion programs by engaging with historically underserved or underrepresented communities; and leveraging existing relationships, resources, and expertise.
Projects seeking Technology Matching Funds should aim to increase internet access and adoption, as described above, through:
