Digital Inclusion in Minneapolis

Minneapolis’ Digital Inclusion Fund

As part of the contract between the City of Minneapolis and USI Wireless (the company that is building and managing the citywide wireless network), USI Wireless agreed to establish a Digital Inclusion Fund to promote affordable Internet access, low cost hardware, computer training and local content.

The City sought the creation of this fund as a way to bridge the digital divide and to help folks who otherwise may not have access to the technology tools and training needed to compete in today’s digital world.

The City asked the Minneapolis Foundation to manage the digital inclusion fund and its grant making process. Since it was established in 2007, the fund has granted a total of $400,000 to agencies working to promote digital literacy and bridge the digital divide.
