  • Collaborative projects (especially cross-sector partnerships)
  • Projects oriented towards long-term solutions
  • Regional/multi-county projects

The WNY Digital Equity Coalition is a component of Moving Forward Together, an initiative of the WNY COVID-19 Community Response Fund. Understanding that we need to emerge from this crisis stronger through innovation, the WNY COVID-19 Community Response Fund started the Moving Forward Together (MFT) initiative in June 2020 by developing and supporting strategies focused on long-term collaborative and systemic solutions to address persistent needs in our community. Through MFT, the Fund is supporting a series of initiatives including: Food Future WNY, Digital Equity & Inclusion, Public Policy & Advocacy and Sourcing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
