San Fran­cisco was one of the for­tu­nate com­mu­ni­ties to be awarded a fed­eral stim­u­lus grant to help bridge the dig­i­tal divide as part of the Broad­band Tech­nol­ogy Oppor­tu­ni­ties Pro­gram (BTOP).

This pro­gram is a federally-funded ini­tia­tive that offers broad­band Inter­net access to seniors and adults with dis­abil­i­ties in San Fran­cisco. Basic com­puter and Inter­net train­ing classes are offered to stim­u­late broad­band usage and adoption.
