Digital Navigator Resources

Digital Equity

Digital Equity

Digital equity is a condition in which all individuals and communities have the information technology capacity needed for full participation in our society, democracy, and economy. Digital equity is necessary for civic and cultural participation, employment, lifelong learning, and access to essential services.

It is important to note here the use of “equity” vs. “equality.” When we use the word equity, we accurately acknowledge the systemic barriers that must be dismantled before achieving equality for all.

Digital Inclusion

Digital Inclusion refers to the activities necessary to ensure that all individuals and communities, including the most disadvantaged, have access to and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). This includes five elements:

1. Affordable, robust broadband internet service;

2. Internet-enabled devices that meet the needs of the user;

3. Access to digital literacy training;

4. Quality technical support; and

5. Applications and online content designed to enable and encourage self-sufficiency, participation and collaboration.

Digital Inclusion must evolve as technology advances. Digital Inclusion requires intentional strategies and investments to reduce and eliminate historical, institutional and structural barriers to access and use technology.

WDVA did not receive a renewed grant for 2023-2024 and cannot accept additional open applications for technology kits and services. We will continue to seek opportunities for new funding to reinstate the program.


The Digital Navigator Program is a grant-funded program within WDVA that helps eligible Veterans or their families connect to earned benefits, healthcare, and other supportive services. 

The program will focus on Veterans in underserved rural areas, elderly Veterans, Veterans of color, Homeless Veteran Reintegration Program Participants, and Veterans participating in higher education or apprenticeship.  Grant funding is provided by the Department of Commerce to advance digital literacy skills, digital equity, and connectivity in Washington. 

We are here to help eligible Veterans or families:

  • by providing Digital Navigator kits 
  • build computer skills to help access earned Veteran benefits, healthcare and services
  • connect to resources that are suitable for their skill level, needs and lifestyle
