The public-private partnership, facilitated by the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, aims to get computers and hot spots in the hands of students who wouldn’t otherwise have internet access.

Franklin County is putting forward $500,000 and the city of Columbus is contributing $1.5 million. In addition to the public funding, J.P. Morgan Chase committed $50,000, and MORPC says it’s looking for more backers.
