Digital Equity

The Digital Equity Act Program provides $2.75 billion to establish three grant programs that promote digital equity and inclusion. They aim to ensure that all people and communities have the skills, technology, and capacity needed to reap the full benefits of our digital economy.

The South Dakota Digital Opportunity Plan serves as an inclusive vision for bridging the digital divide, with the explicit aim of working towards South Dakota’s broader economic goals. The State recognizes that empowering its residents with the 21st century technologies and skills is crucial to preserving our way of life and allowing our small towns to thrive. South Dakota will maximize and optimize the funding that will be made available to it under the Digital Equity Act, using this Plan as its roadmap.
