Nebraska Digital Equity Planning Grant Program
The State Digital Equity Planning Grant Program is one of three new broadband programs established by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). This program falls under the Digital Equity Act within IIJA and provides federal funding for States to develop their own State Digital Equity Plan. States interested in participating in the State Digital Equity Capacity Grant Program must first complete State Digital Equity Plans.
Nebraska has been allocated $598,746 to develop a state digital equity plan. The Nebraska Information Technology Commission (NITC)/Office of the CIO will be leading the planning effort with the assistance of the state’s regional economic development districts and the Nebraska Library Commission, among other stakeholder groups.
