Free Internet, Equipment and Training for Eligible Households



Approximately 21.4 percent of Americans lack access to home internet. Of the more than 24 million unconnected households nationwide, this digital divide disproportionately affects minority and low-income populations.


In partnership with the City of Sacramento, SMUD, and the City of Rancho Cordova, as well as other community-based organizations and non-profits, United Way is helping to bring internet services, computers, and digital training at no cost to eligible residents through the new Digital Equity program. The program's overarching goal is to remove barriers to education and employment and to build the digital capacity of those in the community who are most acutely affected by the digital divide.
