Welcome to the Clinton Administration's Digital Divide Web site, a comprehensive clearinghouse for information about the Administration's efforts to provide all Americans with access to the Internet and other information technologies that are crucial to their economic growth and personal advancement.

The Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has established this new web site to help inform you of federal programs designed to close the digital divide. Using this web site, you will be able to identify a range of grant and loan programs that provide assistance to Americans vulnerable to falling on the wrong side of the digital divide. In addition, we have provided direct links to other resources that provide information on private sector educational and funding initiatives. Finally, you use this web site to find updates on funding programs, policy debates, and recent studies that address digital divide issues. Please e-mail any thoughts or suggestions to digitaldivide@ntia.doc.gov.

I hope you will become a regular visitor to the web site and that it will be useful and informative.
