The Australian Government approached a limited number of community organisations to participate, alongside education authorities in providing nominations for the School Student Broadband Initiative (SSBI).

These organisations have been approached based on their:

• National reach assisting and supporting disadvantaged children and their families,
• Demonstrated efforts to improve digital inclusion and online learning for students.

Given this is a small-scale targeted affordability initiative it is only practical to directly involve a limited number of nominating organisations.
