To learn more about this opportunity, please join EveryoneOn and the National Housing Conference for a webinar on May 8th @ 2:00 p.m. (EST). Applications will be accepted from May 15, 2018 through June 15, 2018.
Please share with HCD’s non-entitlement communities, stakeholders and partners working on bridging the digital divide and may be interested in becoming a ConnectHomeUSA site .
Many of HUD partners already have strategies and programs to provide access to technology for subsidized households and becoming a ConnectHomeUSA site helps them up their game.
