Resident Digital Inclusion Project

Roxboro Housing Authority’s

Resident Digital Inclusion Project

In partnership with

ConnectHomeUSA & EveryoneON

ConnectHomeUSA (formerly ConnectHome Nation) is a movement to bridge the digital divide for HUD-assisted housing residents in the United States under the leadership of national nonprofit, EveryoneOn.

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.

Through these stakeholders’ specific commitments to provide free or low-cost broadband access, devices, and digital literacy training, ConnectHomeUSA extends affordable access to low-income families, ensuring that high-speed internet follows our children from their classrooms back to their home.

Roxboro Housing Authority’s Vision & Goal:

VISION

“Narrow the digital divide for seniors and those with disabilities who live in HUD-assisted housing.”

GOAL

Provide in-home broadband connectivity (free or low cost) to 25 seniors and disabled residents, provide connectivity devices, and train them to utilize these devices to reduce isolation and to improve health and wellness.

Participants will be selected through enrollees of RHA’s ROSS Services Program which focuses on connecting seniors and those with disabilities with resources which enables them to maintain stable and independent living in their units.

RHA's Partners and Support Teams, include participants/residents, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) along with our national partners, EveryoneOn, ConnectHomesUSA, and GitHUB
