Featured Initiative

Digital Equity Initiative & RFP

 

MCA is working to advance digital equity for all: to ensure that all Mainers, especially those who are most impacted by the digital divide, have access to and are able to use, information and communications technologies so they can fully realize all of the civic, economic, health, educational, social and other benefits that they provide.

 

The MCA is in need of contract expertise to create an inventory of existing digital equity and inclusion assets in Maine and provide some analysis on the scale and impact of these initiatives and programs.  MCA is seeking proposals from qualified, independent consultants or institutions to assist the MCA in compiling a comprehensive inventory.
