Low-Cost Equipment

Description: A vital source of free and affordable computer systems for new home broadband users as well as community training programs, is the refurbishing of used equipment from individuals, corporations, and public agencies. The past few years have seen significant growth of professional refurbishing operations run by local nonprofit organizations. This workshop will bring together some of the nation's best nonprofit refurbishers to share experiences and ideas. We will also talk with a General Services Administration representative about possible changes in Federal government tech donation policy that could help community programs.
