The Institute for Emerging Issues at NC State is looking for community initiatives that are actively working to best leverage high speed broadband for economic growth and community improvement.

This could include but is not limited to:

  • Supporting and creating digital inclusion efforts to improve community connectivity (teaching computer literacy classes,
  • Providing computers to low-income households, etc),
  • Supporting sector-specific innovation enabled by high speed internet (using drones to provide real-time data for farming, innovative ideas around telehealth, etc.),
  • Helping small businesses leverage their access to the internet or creating opportunities for remote working as a strategy to keep talent in your community.

Communities selected for the cohort will benefit from a state-wide platform to showcase their work, and a peer learning network to share with–and learn from–communities across the state, among other benefits

More information and how to apply can be found HERE. Applications due Tuesday, November 12th.
