The national offices of the PowerUP program, which aimed to eliminate the digital divide, will close for lack of money, The New York Times reports.

The nearly 1,000 PowerUP centers across the country will stay open provided they can find other financing. Corporate partners had donated an estimated $100 million for the program since its inception in November 1999.
