DEAP Implementation

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.



DEAP roadmap


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.
