The County of Los Angeles Will Distribute 1,000 Laptops to Military Veterans Impacted by the Digital Divide

Delete The Divide is an initiative led by the County of Los Angeles to advance digital equity in underserved communities. The initiative includes a range of support programs and services, including the issuance of laptops to households in need. The County is thrilled to announce the success of its Laptops for Veterans campaign, which is providing free laptops to military veterans this holiday season.

The campaign launched on November 28, announcing the first 1,000 veterans to submit a completed needs assessment form would receive a free laptop. The response was overwhelming, with all spots filled within just three days by veterans representing the various military branches: Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy, Space Force, and U.S. Coast Guard. This response underscores the critical need for technology access among veterans. Whether it’s reconnecting with loved ones during the holidays, accessing health care and benefits, job opportunities, and pursuing online education, County veterans can do just that, thanks to this program.

The laptops will be distributed at 15 County Library locations by the County’s Delete The Divide staff. These devices are funded by the County’s general fund with approval from the Board of Supervisors.

Delete The Divide has provided more than 2,500 free laptops across the County to students, seniors, families, veterans, community-based organizations, and people experiencing homelessness. In 2024, the goal is to distribute an additional 7,500 new laptops to constituents in need with funding from the American Rescue Plan Act and a grant from the California Public Utilities Commission.
