WASHINGTON, July 31, 2009 – ZeroDivide, an investor in community enterprises leveraging technology to help underserved communities, is looking for non-profit partners to apply for broadband monies that are part of the national economic stimulus plan.
It’s specifically looking for collaborations to secure funds from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s Broadband Technology Opportunities Program grants. It hopes to expand its work in a handful of western states including Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada and New Mexico along with Illinois, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
ZeroDivide says its strategy is to “build the capacity of vulnerable communities to understand, design and use broadband technology through systematic teaching, training, technical assistance and providing resources to a peer-based network of community anchor institutions in vulnerable communities.”
It hopes to accomplish its goal by focusing on community media production and distribution, online vocational skills curriculum development, community and civic engagement and technology capacity building.
The company is expecting all partners to complete an online application and should be looking to apply for up to $75,000 for two years.
