Program History

The Technology Matching Fund program was established in 1997 to support the community's efforts to close the digital divide and encourage a technology-healthy city. It  provides grants where the community's contribution of volunteer labor, materials, professional services, or cash is matched by the Technology Matching Fund.

This program is administered by the Community Technology Program of the City's Department of Information Technology and is funded with cable franchise fees and other contributions.  A total of $4.6 million has been awarded to over 300 projects between 1998 and 2017.
