SEDA-COG’s Information Technologies Group works with counties, municipalities, and nonprofit organizations, helping them choose among computer programs, hardware, and network systems. We help them determine what they need to accomplish and what will work best for them. Questions related to the Internet and e-commerce are addressed, and we help them decide who will be trained and how to find the training.
SEDA-COG’s Information Technologies Group offers a wide range of computer skills—everything from programming and network design, to database management and workstation configuration. Due to the aggregate economic power of 11 counties working together, SEDA-COG can offer this expertise and make it available.

- Tri-County Rural Broadband Expansion Project
This project will address the lack of rural broadband infrastructure in the three (3) participating counties of Mifflin, Juniata, and Perry County. It will also create interest from multiple providers, thereby creating a competitive environment for broadband access. Upon success, this model can be replicated and expanded to the entire SEDA-COG region, as well as across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. [more]

SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG), in cooperation with Clinton, Lycoming, Northumberland, and Union counties have been awarded funds from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) POWER 2020 funds for $2,500,000 that would, in part, provide funding for reimbursable grants to incentivize ISP’s in expanding their service areas into the unserved/underserved rural regions of the four counties. Total project costs for each county will be $1,500,000. [more]
