Native American Tribe Learning Computer Skills

Posted in Recovery Projects/Awards by Recovery.gov on July 22, 2011

The University of Wisconsin-Extension (UWEX) in Madison was awarded $2.4 million under the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s Broadband Technologies Opportunities Program. UWEX allotted $174,300 of the grant to underwrite computer classes that the university’s affiliate, the College of the Menominee Nation, offers free to tribe members.

Menominee veterans were some of those to take advantage of the computer classes.
