The Huntington Bank Community Development Corporation has committed $2.5 million in grants over the next five years for a state-wide Digital Inclusion Fund. The Fund will provide $500,000 per year in flexible grant dollars to support technology infrastructure and training to further economic mobility through digital access.
The residents at Lyons Place II and Twin Towers Place in Dayton were the recipients of the first Digital Inclusion Award. Each resident received a voice controlled smart speaker device and free Wi-Fi in resident apartments. These devices help residents remain connected to family and friends throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, reducing isolation in this vulnerable time.
OCCH partners that own properties in which Huntington has an investment can apply for funding. The application and further information can be found here.
