Melissa - Cindy, I am a big fan of the Tulsa Responds program that utilizes Navigators to help low income families sign up for white labeled service from Cox & AT&T. They have attacked the real issues holding back digital equity in urban markets credit & technical understanding. Tulsa Responds has signed up 22,000 families in Tulsa this school year. https://www.tulsaresponds.org/

Bilingual Navigators are the key. Stephanie Parra from PUSD proposed a similar idea when we last spoke. I'd love to pull a group together on this and see what federal grants we can pull down for Digital Equity. A little bit outside of my scope but a very important issue in our urban areas.

Navigators are the key to adoption. We take for granted our basic understanding of technology that many people just do not have.

Cover Arizona has a statewide network of Navigators. They speak different languages and assisting community members apply for AHCCCS and SNAP benefits, they also share community resources. http://coveraz.org/navigators-and-assisters/

Seems like this is another area to discover all of the resources available and see how to align and take advantage of these.
