Striving to Close the Digital Divide
The City of Minneapolis is wondering how you interact in the technological world by conducting a city-wide survey to help bridge the local digital divide.
This January, the City of Minnesota is surveying Southwest residents to gather their perspectives about how they use computers, mobile devices and the Internet to better their daily lives
According to the City of Minneapolis, about 8,800 randomly selected households will receive the survey in the mail from National Research Center, Inc.
Surveys will be mailed out beginning Tuesday, Jan. 5. Residents can request the survey in additional languages by calling 311 or 612-673-3000.
The City of Minneapolis will use the results to better understand technology use in Minneapolis and to help guide the City’s efforts in closing the digital divide.
The results will also be used by Minneapolis’ Digital Inclusion Fund as its advisors decide how to target grant funds to help bridge this divide.
