From the Chicago Defender:

As National Digital Inclusion Week gets underway, the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) announced it has been selected as a 2019 ConnectHomeUSA Cohort that allows public housing authorities to access high-quality internet and other resources aimed at closing the digital divide.

CHA’s participation in the cohort builds on the agency’s existing efforts to expand digital access for residents.

“Being selected as a 2019 Cohort is an exciting opportunity to increase digital awareness and resources within CHA,” said Patricia Steward, CHA’s Senior Manager of Digital Inclusion and Program Support. “Working with our residents to introduce new technology and digital devices requires compassion and patience, particularly in our senior community. Our goal is to leave no resident behind and provide the necessary services and resources to sustain self-sufficiency.”
