Neighborhoods Unplugged, a project of Little Tokyo Service Center (LTSC), aims to close the Digital Divide in selected underserved areas of Los Angeles by increasing broadband availability in low-income neighborhoods through infrastructure deployment and education projects. The project will use broadband to stimulate community development with literacy training, small business education, workforce development, and public safety improvements. Additionally, the project will increase computer ownership in underserved households through donations and education.
This grant included an extension for community technology trainings, broadband access, and program support at five technology centers in Little Tokyo (2), Echo Park, Gardena/Torrance, and the San Gabriel Valley. The grant also covers technical support and outreach services to Get Connected! California campaign by CETF to local Asian and Pacific Islander (API) communities in the Los Angeles area.
