The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP), a Moving to Work (MTW) agency, has been working in partnership with the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region (NNLM MAR) to improve digital and health literacy within their public housing communities. Through their Mobile Computing Lab initiative and grant funding from NNLM MAR, HACP has expanded their outreach to vulnerable public housing residents, including children, seniors, and refugees, to provide greater access to health and wellness information, improved awareness of diseases and illness, and improved access to treatment and preventative health measures. As an MTW agency, HACP is provided with additional flexibilities around operations and funding, which allows the agency to pursue innovative strategies and partnerships to improve life outcomes for residents.
