Austin, Texas, is one of the most connected cities in the United States. Yet there are “digital deserts” in Austin in which the majority of families do not have basic broadband, computer literacy, or a computing device. To support the educational futures of youth in public housing, the Housing Authority of the City of Austin (HACA) launched “Unlocking the Connection,” a program that aims to be the first housing authority in the nation to provide all residents with free basic Internet, digital literacy training, and the opportunity to earn a computing device.
The Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) is looking to partner to provide IT programming to low-income girls in the Cleveland area. CMHA is one of the largest housing authorities in the country and serves more than 55,000 low-income residents of Cuyahoga County. CMHA is excited to work with a partner to provide programming to enhance the availability of opportunities in IT to its residents. CMHA will act as the fiscal agent and provide space, including equipment, for potential programming.
