Digital Equity Program

Digital Equity Program

Provides refurbished computers to low income families and non-profit organizations within Riverside County at No Cost

The Digital Equity Program is a component of the County’s “Green” strategy which provides a more cost-effective method for reducing its Carbon footprint by enabling e-government, accessing services online and handling of e-waste. Accessibility to online services reduces the need to visit a county facility, thus reducing traffic and our usage of carbon generating resources
