Stakeholder Engagement

DEEP has launched a comprehensive local coordination effort to gather input for Connecticut’s broadband infrastructure and digital equity programs. Public participation throughout the planning and implementation processes is critical to ensure that broadband infrastructure is deployed in a way that is responsive to the needs and priorities of communities struggling with affordability and reliable access. By setting clear goals, this effort will allow stakeholders from all communities to provide feedback, understand the benefits and opportunities of broadband, and work collaboratively towards shared goals.

DEEP is working to ensure:

  • Full geographic coverage of broadband service in Connecticut, including Tribal, rural, suburban, and urban areas.
  • Meaningful engagement and outreach to diverse stakeholder groups.
  • Utilization of multiple awareness and participation tactics and different methods to convey information and conduct outreach.
  • Establishment, documentation, and adherence to clear procedures to ensure transparency.
  • Outreach to and engagement of unserved and underserved communities, including those that have been historically underrepresented.

Please check back regularly for new dates and times of events and other feedback opportunities.
