Matching grants of up to $25,000 to Seattle, Washington nonprofits, neighborhood groups, Parent-Teacher-Student Associations (PTSA), business groups, and other community-based organizations for digital equity projects. Funding is intended for projects that provide technology opportunities to all of Seattle's residents and communities – especially those who are historically underserved or underrepresented.

The fund seeks to support creative and collaborative approaches to providing digital opportunities. Priority will be given to projects that engage historically underserved or underrepresented communities and leverage existing relationships, resources and expertise.

The Technology Matching Fund aims to address gaps that exist in the following areas:

  • Connectivity: Increase access to free or low-cost broadband
  • Skills training: Empower residents with digital literacy skills
  • Devices and technical support: Ensure affordable, available and sufficient devices and technical support
