Hawai‘i is one of six states to receive up to $100,000 for digital literacy as part of a National Governors Association Workforce Innovation Network. The grant will be used to create a plan to advance digital skills statewide. “This grant supports our vision of a diversified economy with a focus on digital access and equity,” said Governor Ige.
