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.
