Seven Massachusetts Communities & Regions Named National Digital Inclusion Trailblazers
The National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) highlighted seven Massachusetts cities, towns, and regions as digital inclusion trailblazers, including several communities that participate in the Massachusetts Broadband Institute's (MBI) Municipal Digital Equity Planning grant program:
- City of Boston;
- Pioneer Valley Region;
- City of Pittsfield;
- City of Quincy;
- Town of Randolph; and
- The City of Somerville.
Also included is the Boston Metro Region, which highlights the work of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and partners to boost connectivity and access across the region.
This year, the NDIA introduced a new scoring system that named 22 of the 47 winners as Visionary Digital Inclusion Trailblazers— to attain this title, each region had to score at least 18 points in an evaluation. The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative and MBI are proud to share that the City of Boston is one of the visionary trailblazers. These visionaries are successful models of how other local governments build digital inclusion in their communities.
Congratulations to all of our trailblazers!
