The National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) has released a free guidebook on ways that communities can increase access to digital resources and help close the digital divide. The NDIA is an active voice on behalf of the under-served and advocates for more availability of residential high-speed Internet, free public broadband, digital coaching services, and free technical training for personal enrichment, education and entrepreneurship.
NDIA promotes and implements digital inclusion initiatives while encouraging policy makers to legislate and fund more programs nationwide. To date, there are 310 NDIA affiliated organizations, with new organizations signing on daily. This includes 40 national nonprofits and 233 local public and nonprofit organizations in 38 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands; the Virgin Islands Next Generation Network is among these.
NDIA also enjoys the faithful support of 28 private U.S. businesses and 11 international Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and 23 local municipal agencies, 39 local public libraries and regional library councils, 16 college/university programs, 12 state government agencies, three local school districts, eight housing authorities and 132 local nonprofit organizations.
