The Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission, in collaboration with Allies for Children and Carnegie Mellon University (Metro21 and Traffic21) and a broad, regional coalition of stakeholders proposes to develop a regional Connectivity Improvement Plan to
deploy high-speed connectivity programs and projects to enable the areas of the southwestern Pennsylvania region lacking adequate high-speed internet access and equipment to better connect to jobs, education, health care and to attract new business to all corners of the region. Most importantly, this strategic plan will help people connect to opportunity.
As part of this work, in partnership with The Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission and Carnegie Mellon University, Allies for Children will be hosting over a dozen community conversations around internet connectivity.
Conversations will take place in Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Washington, and Westmoreland counties.
Please see the attached flyers and you can see a full list of conversations on our website.
