Under the leadership of Digital Inclusion Champion, Martha van Rooijen who is manager of the Inland Empire Regional Broadband Consortium (IERBC), is launching a series of surveys and community listening sessions in collaboration with the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), CETF, and other Regional Consortia to promote broadband as a “green strategy” and advocate for “dig once” and “dig smart” strategies to integrate broadband deployment and transportation planning. SCAG has been awarded a $500,000 Caltrans Sustainable Communities Grant to identify ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by providing communities with access to high-speed Internet service to encourage fewer vehicle trips and other best practices adopted by the California Transportation Commission.
