Planning Our Digital Future

Emergency Broadband Benefit is Now Open

The Federal Communications Commission has launched a temporary program to help families and households struggling to afford Internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Emergency Broadband Benefit provides a discount of up to $50 per month toward broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.

Eligible households can enroll through a participating broadband provider or directly with the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) using an online or mail-in application.

You can learn more about the benefit, including eligibility and enrollment information, by visiting  www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit, or by calling 833-511-0311.

The Resident Survey has closed

While we are no longer conducting an online survey, there will be more opportunities for you to give us input on the Digital Marin plan.   Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter for updates on the plan and how you can participate.

What is Digital Marin?

Digital Marin is a project to develop a digital infrastructure strategic plan.​

Digital infrastructure is the data, software apps, and physical infrastructure working together to provide access, information, and online services to stakeholders.  The Digital Marin initiative aims to better understand the digital needs and vision of our residents, communities, schools, public agencies, and business sectors to develop a roadmap to achieve them.  From there we will highlight opportunities for more efficient, transparent, and customer-oriented cross-jurisdictional and cross-sector service delivery.

For more on the project visit our About page. To learn more about the teams conducting outreach see Communities.
