Neighborhood Allies is proud to serve on the Pittsburgh Digital Equity Coalition (PDEC) that is working on creating and implementing a 5-year plan for the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County that will end the digital divide.
The PDEC puts collaboration at the forefront among nonprofits, academic institutions, government, and community groups to prioritize providing digital connectivity, hardware access, digital skills education, and technical support to everyone in Allegheny County.
In addition to the PDEC, Neighborhood Allies is a leader in the Greater Pittsburgh Digital Inclusion Alliance (GPDIA), a convening of a community-wide, multi-sector committee of organization working to cooperatively address equitable access to and use of communication technologies.
Through these two groups we will be exploring avenues of providing broadband access to all households including mesh networks, equitable 5G development and access, and affordable in-home connectivity solutions.
