ConnectHome logoEveryoneOn and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are collaborating to connect children and families in HUD-assisted housing with access to high-speed Internet.  This pilot program is called ConnectHome.

Goals

ConnectHome will accelerate broadband adoption and narrow the digital divide in communities across the nation. ConnectHome will address various barriers to broadband access, including the costs associated with high-speed service and electronic devices, and the need to provide residents with training in digital literacy.

Community Information

In each participating community, EveryoneOn is working with HUD to help coordinate involvement from public housing agencies, funders, Internet service providers, and community organizations and ensure a holistic approach to Internet adoption.
