Digital Equity Grant Opportunities

Seniors using tech

Technology Matching Fund 

Seattle is working together for digital equity, to ensure all residents and neighborhoods have the information technology capacity needed for civic life, cultural participation, employment, lifelong learning, and access to essential services. We collaborate with education, community, and business partners on intentional strategies and investments to create opportunities and to reduce and eliminate existing and historical barriers to technology access and use.

Digital equity grants are a cornerstone of the City’s Digital Equity Program. Our vision is for Seattle to be a city where technology’s opportunities equitably empower all residents and communities, especially those who are historically underserved or underrepresented. These grants seek to support community-driven solutions to achieving digital equity in Seattle.

The Technology Matching Fund program was established by Resolution 29673 and 31919 in 1997 to support the community’s efforts to close the digital divide and encourage a technology-healthy city. Over $7 million has been awarded since 1998. The fund continues the legacy of Bill Wright, a Central District community leader who embodied the program goals of creating digital equity and opportunities for all, and of using technology tools to engage residents, improve communications and strengthen communities. Bill Wright developed Midtown Commons, one of the early technology access and education centers in Seattle.

Internet for All 

These funds are a key part of the City's Internet for All framework. The lack of access to internet-accessible devices and technical skills play a significant role in why some residents remain unconnected. Partnering with organizations that support communities in a holistic way is essential for reaching diverse populations that need digital support.
