PROJECT

The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted how digital deserts throughout Birmingham prevented many residents from reaching telehealth options, students from completing the school year, others from joining the workforce after layoffs, and some from accessing critical city and social services. To combat this digital divide, FUSE will partner with Birmingham to launch a comprehensive strategy for city-wide broadband expansion and digital inclusion.
