Virgin Islands Public Finance Authority
viNGN Public Computer Centers Program
To address the lack of broadband technology access and the relative isolation and economic hardship faced by many Virgin Islands residents, the Virgin Islands Public Finance Authority is proposing a program to establish or upgrade more than 50 public computer centers at libraries and community centers across the territory. The program plans to provide access to more than 700 new computer workstations, training in computer literacy skills, high-definition teleconferencing capabilities, and technology services for small businesses. The project includes 420 new workstations that can be checked out as part of a unique telework program with partner BetterWorld to train island residents for work-at-home call center jobs.
