Computer Reach Receives $45K Grant from Wolf Administration
The Wolf Administration awarded a $45,000 grant to Computer Reach to help expand our organization’s digital literacy curriculum, offerings, and more to increase digital literacy across the Commonwealth.
About the Digital Literacy Grant
On March 17, Department of Labor and Industry (L&I) Secretary Jennifer Barrier announced that 21 organizations and projects are receiving awards totaling $900,000 to bolster local efforts to increase digital literacy in Pennsylvania. Computer Reach is among this list of recipients, receiving a $45,000 grant to:
- expand our digital literacy curriculum and offerings,
- add modules for job seekers (including more advanced software skills), and
- include digital citizenship for professionals to serve 75 job seekers in Allegheny County.
The Wolf Administration awarded this round of funding to support local programs and projects that help workers develop the digital literacy skills they need to apply for jobs and succeed in new careers. It also builds on previous funding in April 2021 ($1.4 million) that offered support to local programs offering computer-skills training.
Our organization is thankful to the Wolf Administration for this opportunity and for the administration’s continued work to increase access to digital devices, support digital literacy initiatives, and bridge the digital divide in Pennsylvania.
