Closing Charlotte’s Digital Divide
May 31, 2018
ConnectHomeUSA (formerly ConnectHome Nation) is a movement to bridge the digital divide for HUD-assisted housing residents in the United States under the leadership of national nonprofit EveryoneOn. By helping residents in participating communities to get connected at home and providing access to digital literacy and educational content, we aim to make public housing a platform for change. ConnectHomeUSA creates a platform for community leaders, local governments, nonprofit organizations, and private industry to join together and produce locally-tailored solutions for narrowing the digital divide. Through these stakeholders’ specific commitments to provide free or low-cost broadband access, devices, and digital literacy training, ConnectHomeUSA extends affordable access to low-income families, ensuring that high-speed internet follows our children from their classrooms back to their homes.
Senior Vice President of Client Services, Tomico Evans of the Charlotte Housing Authority, Christine Edwards of Mecklenburg County, and Dottie Stowe of Southside Homes discuss upcoming deployment of ConnectHomeUSA at CHA properties.Back to News
