CINCINNATI (Feb. 16, 2024) - United Way of Greater Cincinnati (UWGC) is administering a digital equity grant program to support efforts to increase digital inclusion programming in priority populations and communities.

Nonprofit organizations from UWGC’s nine-county service region can apply for funding for digital equity-related programming. Grant amounts are expected to be between $25,000 and $50,000.

UWGC will fund programs that bridge the digital divide, fostering inclusivity and accessibility. We encourage proposals for innovative digital inclusion solutions, empowering diverse populations to navigate the digital landscape with confidence and competence.

This funding opportunity complements another grant UWGC is administering in partnership with Hamilton County. That program is intended for proposed investments in public broadband infrastructure as opposed to programming.

Applications are due by March 8, 2024. For the full request for proposals, including eligibility requirements, visit UWGC’s Digital Equity page.
