Digital Literacy Alliance
The Digital Literacy Alliance (DLA) is a broad coalition of digital inclusion partners working to overcome the digital divide in Philadelphia. The DLA develops strategy, manages an existing seed fund, raises additional funding and oversees funded programs with the assistance of committee members.
The goals of the Digital Literacy Alliance are:
- To fund programs in Philadelphia focused on digital literacy and inclusion
- To bring together diverse institutions and community leaders who are interested in improving residents’ access to and skill with technology
- To be a resource for best practices and innovations in digital literacy programming and policy-making
The DLA is coordinated by the City of Philadelphia’s Innovation Management Team and includes leaders in government, nonprofits, local companies, universities, and more. Members meet monthly for proposal reviews, grant-making, and fundraising.
