RCLF Receives 2 Grants from CPUC
The California Advanced Services Fund (CASF) is a program supported by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for Broadband Adoption. CASF is funded by a surcharge rate on revenues collected by telecommunications carriers from end users for intrastate telecommunications services.
RCLF received a grant award of $79,488 for digital literacy, as well as a grant award of $22,747 for broadband access. These grants will support and expand the Bridging the Digital Divide and Makerspace programs in the library.
This funding recognizes our efforts in areas of digital literacy and equal digital access. It will help RCLF target inequities in access to technology and broadband internet, and address the need for tech-literate workers in the 21st century. RCLF is very grateful for these awards and thanks the CPUC for its support.
