ConnectHomeUSA is built on the concept of open source learning. Even if a community is not chosen to participate in ConnectHomeUSA, we are committed to sharing the best practices we learn along the way by publishing the ConnectHome playbook, case studies, and relevant resources for any and all to come and learn about how to start a digital inclusion campaign in their community.
Developed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and EveryoneOn this document gives an overview of how to build a digital inclusion plan for your housing community.
