Strategic Goals

As Digital Divide is a multi-dimensional problem deeply interconnected with other social-economic issues, it requires a strategic plan in partnership with County departments, cities, states, private partners, and other institutes. The plan would enable sustainable solutions that will bridge the digital divide gap to provide all households in LA County the same opportunity to access and receive crucial information and services. As part of this strategy, the Digital Equity Regional Team collaborated to finalize 3 strategic goals to address Digital Divide.
