National Digital Inclusion Alliance Recognizes Record-Setting 47 Digital Inclusion Trailblazers

The National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) named 47 communities as 2023 Digital Inclusion Trailblazers, recognizing the efforts of local governments to close the digital divide. These communities span 23 states, and demonstrate the important role municipal, county, and regional governments have in digital inclusion. NDIA launched a valuable resource with an open collection of 591 resources and documents from all of the 2023 Trailblazer awardees. Those resources, which make best practices free and available, include job descriptions, program information, local digital equity plans, and more from local governments paving the way for digital equity for their residents.Trailblazers provide models for other local governments to aspire to as communities build digital inclusion ecosystems. Researchers, digital inclusion advocates, and other aspiring local government leaders can see the full list of awardees and resources in an interactive map and searchable database. NDIA will recognize the Digital Inclusion Trailblazers in person February 13-15, 2024 at the Net Inclusion conference in Philadelphia, which is set to be the largest-ever digital equity convening.
