Join Dr. Robert McLaughlin, founder and leader of the National Collaborative for Digital Equity (NCDE), based in Weare, NH and discover how to leverage your district's banking relationship to close the digital divide for your students. The federal Community Reinvestment Act requires banks to make economic opportunity investments in "low and moderate income" (LMI") areas. The nonprofit NH-based National Collaborative for Digital Equity is partnering with the NH Bankers Association, NH School Boards Association, and several state agencies and associations to open up CRA grant funding to support closing the digital divide at home for low-income learners of all ages in NH's LMI communities (see this map). School system leaders from these communities are very welcome to join us for this very interactive session, to leverage your authority over where your district does its banking, to close the "homework gap" for your students and their families. CRA credit can be given to banks not only for home broadband and computers, but also for creating coding programs, expanding college and career readiness efforts, and STEM pipeline development, among other purposes.
