In 2012, TASCHA and IMLS published Building Digital Communities: a framework for action. Building Digital Communities provides a resource for community digital inclusion planning in US, including
a vision for the future,
principles that define digital inclusion,
goals to make digital inclusion a reality, and
sample strategies for reaching the goals.

The guidebook cites Building Digital Communities as an “incredibly valuable to community-wide digital inclusion efforts.” NDIA’s guidebook details how to create and grow digital inclusion coalitions. Communities can use the two resources together to work towards digital inclusion for all of their residents
