Equity in Infrastructure Development: The Digital Divide

Equity in Infrastructure Development: The Digital Divide

Tuesday, September 21 at 12 p.m.

For too long, the need for national infrastructure solutions has been limited to conversations of roads, bridges and stalemates in Congress. The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the financial circumstances of many communities just as high-speed broadband is needed in every home and business as a means to adapting to the socially-distanced reality of the moment. Local and state leaders should act swiftly to establish governance frameworks that support investment strategies using innovative finance tools. How can state leaders leverage an enhanced governance structure to better align various financing tools and incentives so local communities can realize their resilient infrastructure economic development goals?
