The Community Connectivity Imitative is designed to support communities working to accelerate broadband access, improve digital inclusion, strengthen policies, and support local community priorities.

Through collaborative sessions, participants will: review BroadbandUSA’s Community Connectivity framework; review assessment questions and response options; co-design the structure and content for the report and recommendations; and identify supporting resources and tools that will support the local communities’ use of the tools in 2017 and beyond. The August 11th session will include an overview of the Community Connectivity Initiative and a first look at the phase one assessment tool. We’ll ask you what you like about the tool and what we can improve.


The BroadbandUSA (CCI) monthly webinars will be held on the second Thursday of each month from 2:00-3:00 p.m., Eastern Time, starting on July 14, 2016 and ending on March 9, 2017. The August 11th webinar will include an overview, demonstration, and discussion.
