Free Chromebooks for Digital Empowerment Day participants in D.C.

Participants in the Digital Empowerment Day that will take place on April 24 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in Northwest have the chance to register to receive a free refurbished Chromebook.

With a donation from Human I-T, and on behalf of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, the D.C. Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD), the D.C. Public Library (DCPL), and the Mayor’s Office of Returning Citizens Affairs (MORCA) are partnering to support aspiring city entrepreneurs and businesses by removing one of the main barriers to digital empowerment.  Together, these organizations are providing 144 Google Chromebook laptops to help close the digital divide under-resourced small businesses and entrepreneurs often experience.

People interested in one of the laptops must complete and submit a registration application by the deadline of April 19 by noon. Recipients must be a District business owner, or a city resident and proof of residence is required by either a Department of Motor Vehicles identification or a driver’s license. 

Recipients must be at least 18. Attendance at the April 24 event is mandatory to receive a chromebook. Multiple eligibility forms are not allowed.

Chromebooks will be assigned from accepted applications on a first-come, first-served basis. If selected, DSLBD will send a confirmation email to selected applicants.

Please email your questions to inno.ed@dc.gov.
