Poverty is a state of being without; a condition in which a person or community lacks the essentials and resources to live a minimum standard of being. Poverty is the complete lack of the means necessary to meet basic personal needs such as food, clothing, and shelter, which affect all ethnicities, race, creeds, and color. Poverty will greet us on different and uneven playing fields. For some, the playing field is so vast and very uneven, making it a much higher climb for some to reach their desired standard of being and prosperity.

February 2023 – Governor Youngkin and the General Assembly have designated the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development’s Office of Broadband (DHCD) to lead the development of the Commonwealth Digital Opportunity Plan. The intent of this program is to bring organizations working to close the digital divide into the state’s planning process. The objective of this grant opportunity is to identify best practices of initiatives/efforts that are addressing the digital divide in communities throughout Virginia.
DHCD will provide grant funding to the organizations operating these programs, with the deliverable of a case study highlighting key findings, which DHCD will incorporate into the Commonwealth Digital Opportunity Plan. These case studies will provide real-world examples of efforts throughout the Commonwealth that interact with the covered populations, address how the covered populations can be engaged in addressing the digital divide, and chart a possible course for any future implementation funding.
