Northern NM $30k ISOC Beyond the Net Grant
Awarded to Community Learning Network
In June 2017, Community Learning Network (CLN) secured a grant for $30,000 from the Internet Society's 'Beyond the Net' community grants program for a "Cultivating Connectivity in the Land of Enchantment" initiative in Northern New Mexico. Through June 2019, CLN will work with local community organizations in Northern New Mexico and Espanola to "improve IT acess, content, and training" for community members in this underserved region, where Internet connection speed ranks 48th in the nation and unemployment ranks first.
