$4.7 Million Allocated for Digital Skills Training

By Trish Svoboda

Governor Laura Kelly announced in a release a $4.75 million initiative aimed at improving the digital skills of Kansans who have not fully harnessed the potential of the internet. The program, known as Digital Opportunities to Connect Kansans (DOCK), is designed to boost access to essential digital tools and opportunities.

DOCK facilitates access to digital resources by offering grants for programs focused on developing digital skills. Individual awards under the program can reach up to $250,000, requiring a 5 percent match in funds.

The Kansas Office of Broadband Development is actively encouraging collaboration among local governments, community organizations, educational institutions, and other stakeholders to ensure the success of the DOCK program
