Louisville Metro Housing Authority
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. 60 Million Americans do not have basic digital literacy, a home computer or internet access. This “Digital Divide” mostly affects families earning less than $25k/year, individuals without high school diplomas, and communities of color; ConnectHomeUSA aims to diminish this gap amongst families and individuals living in HUD-assisted housing. Serving at the Louisville Metro Housing Authority, the AmeriCorps VISTA member will link HUD-assisted households with low-cost home Internet, free digital literacy trainings and refurbished laptop and desktop computers.
