The Schools, Health & Libraries Broadband (SHLB) Coalition [pronounced “SHELL-bee”] is a DC-based nonprofit that advocates for funding programs and policies to address the shortage of adequate broadband for anchor institutions. SHLB works with policy-makers at the federal, state and local levels to promote policies that help schools, libraries, health care providers, and other anchor institutions obtain the open, affordable, high-capacity broadband services they need to effectively serve their communities.
