Digital Equity

Georgia STAND-UP champions the equitable deployment of historic federal funds to revolutionize broadband access and digital literacy in Georgia’s underserved communities.

Bridging the Digital Divide

Georgia STAND-UP is committed to ensuring that every community in Georgia has equal opportunities to thrive in the digital age. With the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Law (IIJL), which allocates a historic $65 billion for expanding high-speed broadband infrastructure, creating digital skills training programs, and reducing internet costs for eligible households, Georgia STAND-UP, in collaboration with the Black Women’s Roundtable, advocates for the equitable distribution of these funds to unserved and underserved communities across the state.

Our efforts include a robust outreach and public awareness campaign for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), where we distribute information and registration resources at public events and through various media outlets. Furthermore, Georgia STAND-UP convenes municipal leaders, community partners, and organized labor to engage with the Georgia Technology Authority (GTA) to advocate for equitable deployment of National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (NTIA) federal funds for the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program and Digital Equity Act programs in Georgia.
