In June 2020, the City announced a partnership with the California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF), EveryoneOn and human-I-T, and launched a centralized online platform for Long Beach residents to access low-cost Internet services, computers and digital literacy resources, called ConnectedLB Platform, in affiliation with CETF’s Get Connected Initiative.
The ConnectedLB Platform allows Long Beach residents to find low-cost Internet services and computers in their local neighborhoods by entering their zip code. Long Beach residents may qualify for low-cost Internet services and computers based on verification of income status and household participation in public benefit programs. The platform is available in both English and Spanish and is expected to run through April 2021 or until further notice. Platform content is managed by EveryoneOn.
To access the platform, Long Beach residents can visit: everyoneon.org/longbeach.
