ConnectHome Initiative Brings Broadband to Public Housing Residents

The American Library Association (ALA) announced that HUD (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) and President Barack Obama’s administration launched the ConnectHome initiative to bring high-speed broadband internet access to public housing residents. It begins with a pilot program in 27 cities and one tribal nation and will reach more than 275,000 low-income households.

ISPs, nonprofits, and private enterprises are providing the access, as well as technical training, digital literacy programs, and devices. ALA notes that libraries will also offer tools and training.
