The Commonwealth Digital Opportunity Plan outlines the necessary components to effectively implement digital equity funding, including details about the application process, scoring criteria and federal requirements for those who receive digital equity funds. The plan was created in accordance with State Digital Equity Program’s Notice of Funding Opportunity and Supplemental Guidance.
