YOUR VO!CE and your experience empowers MHCRC member jurisdictions to advocate for the communications technology needs of our communities at the local, state and federal level.
The Your Vo!ce, Our Communications Technology study is an initiative of the Mt. Hood Cable Regulatory Commission to assess the communications technology needs of our community every ten years.
The study incorporates input from government, education, nonprofit, health and business sectors as well as feedback from community leaders and individual community members living or working in the cities of Fairview, Gresham, Portland, Troutdale, and Wood Village, and Multnomah County.
The study provides important, local information on the distinct needs of our community. Outcomes from the study will be used to:
- Inform cable franchise negotiations with cable television service providers
- Inform the City of Portland and Multnomah County Digital Equity Action Plan (DEAP) which provides county-wide guidance on digital equity and inclusion priorities to governments, grantors, educators and nonprofits
- Provide local data to support state and national discussions on policy and legislation
