What is Digital Opportunity?
There are four components to achieving digital opportunity: internet, devices, applications and digital skills. These components are the centerpiece of Louisiana's Digital Opportunity Plan, which the federal government has given the state nearly $1 million to complete through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
ConnectLA is working to make digital opportunity a reality in Louisiana. From broadband expansion to digital literacy trainings to job creation, our digital opportunity plan seeks to close the gap in access that exists in this state and make Louisiana a model of workforce engagement for the rest of the country.
According to EducationSuperHighway, Louisiana currently ranks first in the country in number of households enrolled in the federal government's Affordable Connectivity Program per capita. The National Digital Inclusion Alliance's Digital Opportunity Index also ranks Louisiana sixth in the country in how well our state government and local governments are addressing digital opportunity.
