Regional Opportunity Initiatives (ROI) has created an opportunity for counties in the Indiana Uplands to participate in a regional digital inclusion planning effort to advance broadband and connectivity in their communities and across the region

From e-learning to remote work, telehealth, internet reliability, and access to devices — digital inclusiveness is crucial to the healthy functioning of our community. This study will look at digital infrastructure, devices, and digital literacy in the Indiana Uplands.

ROI’s digital inclusion effort will provide counties with resources to create a plan to help their communities adapt and prosper in this digital age. ROI and the Purdue Center for Regional Development (PCRD) is working with each county to develop a county plan that will form a broader regional plan.

This strategy will capitalize on the work each county has already completed to become broadband ready, helping to create a comprehensive digital inclusion plan that will enhance connections and provide additional tools to develop resiliency in the Uplands region.
