The DEAP provides a framework for community groups and public agencies to collaborate on actions and projects that specifically address inequities in access to high speed internet, affordable devices, and relevant, culturally-specific training for the plan’s target populations. This cooperative approach builds on isolated digital inclusion programs, projects and activities to achieve greater cooperation and information sharing across our region.
OCT and Multnomah County Library, with assistance from County staff, are tasked with overseeing DEAP implementation. A primary responsibility and commitment of OCT and the Library/County is to foster and engage partnerships and community efforts that align with DEAP goals.
On behalf of the Digital Inclusion Network, and with the support of a Community Technology Grant from the MHCRC, Multnomah County Library developed and hosts an online resource database of digital inclusion programs, services, resources, and tools.
A detailed list of strategic action projects underway
Keeping with the collective effort model, OCT and County/Library convene monthly meetings with DIN members (35 member organizations strong to date) to actively plan DEAP implementation.
