Community Technology Program

The Community Technology Program will support Basin communities to create publicly accessible tech-enabled spaces where residents can access technology and enhance their digital literacy.

Program Grants will assist eligible organizations with:

  • acquiring new technology and digital equipment that provide barrier-free opportunities for residents to use them;
  • completing site improvements to support the integration of new technology and the creation of free, accessible, tech-enabled spaces; and
  • developing and delivering programming to support residents to use the technology and enhance their digital literacy.

Eligible applicants include registered non-profits, local governments, and First Nations in the Columbia Basin Trust region who operate publicly accessible, barrier-free community spaces. These spaces should be free and accessible to residents of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and experiences. These may be libraries, community centres or halls, or long-standing, multi-service organizations.
