ConnectHome San Joaquin County

For some of us, computers and Internet have become well integrated in our lives. However, that is not the reality for many low-income families and children across San Joaquin County. The ConnectHome SJC initiative could help change this broadband access. The Housing Authority of the County of San Joaquin (HACSJ) was selected to participate in President Barack Obama and Department of Housing and Urban Development's ConnectHome Expantion Community. While HACSJ has a broader focus to provide affordable Internet access to public housing communities across the County, under ConnectHome, HACSJ will work to connect designated public housing households with K-12 students.


About the Initiative*

Every child should be given the same opportunity to build a brighter future and to achieve their dreams.

That’s why the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Obama Administration have launched ConnectHome – a pilot initiative that will accelerate broadband adoption by children and families living in HUD-assisted housing across the nation.

Our work seeks to:

  1. Make broadband Internet more adoptable by building new models to provide broadband infrastructure and to offer residents free or discounted service.
  2. Make broadband Internet more valuable by giving residents localized, free, and culturally sensitive training in essential digital literacy skills that will allow them to effectively utilize high-speed Internet.
  3. Make broadband Internet adoption sustainable by providing devices and technical support to our residents and by refocusing existing HUD resources to supplement and sustain the work of ConnectHome.
