The Massachusetts Broadband Institute is hosting a series of public listening sessions this fall as it develops a five-year plan to deploy $147 million in federal investments to support actions to bridge the digital divide.

Informed by public engagement, the Massachusetts Broadband Institute will present its plan and proposal to the federal government later this year.

The MBI listening sessions are part of a Statewide Broadband and Digital Equity planning process and the national Internet for All effort. The two-hour hybrid events are designed to hear directly from residents to help ensure that the unique needs of individuals and communities are elevated in the State’s Broadband and Digital Equity strategic plans.

Agendas for each session may include presentations and discussions regarding region-specific digital equity challenges and opportunities, presentations from experts in the field, and facilitated breakout sessions.

Visit the Massachusetts Internet for All website for more information about the public engagement effort, including schedule and registration.
