Learn more about broadband's connection to jobs, economic development and vibrant communities. From filling out job applications and getting social services to doing homework and growing small businesses, broadband is increasingly the only way to get things done.

It is vital that funders who focus on job development, economic and racial justice, poverty, education, rural sustainability and urban development understand how broadband is connected to these issue areas, and how investing in broadband is one of the best tools to achieve programmatic goals.

Funders of every size and focus can make substantial contributions to broadband infrastructure, planning, technology training, advocacy and education through targeted and often small grants. Learn how two foundations approach this work and see broadband access as a tool to furthering their big-picture work.
