In 2020, Regional Opportunity Initiatives (ROI) created an opportunity for counties in the Indiana Uplands to participate in a regional digital inclusion effort to advance broadband and connectivity in communities and across the region. This study looked at digital infrastructure, devices, and digital literacy in the Indiana Uplands.

In addition to working with the Purdue Center for Regional Development (PCRD) to develop a regional digital inclusion plan, ROI provided counties with resources to develop local plans to help their communities adapt and prosper in this digital age.
