Thanks to the Bipartisan #Infrastructure Law, the new Affordable Connectivity Program is replacing the Emergency Broadband Benefit, providing long-term assistance to expand broadband access in WNY! Today we joined Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz & Fillmore District Council Member Mitch Nowakowski at the King Urban Life Center to announce this historic investment in the future of our community. The ACP will provide low-income families with a monthly discount on their internet bill, as well as a one-time discount on a tablet or computer. This year, thousands of WNY families will qualify for program.

Ida and Melissa, two of our wonderful #ParentChild+ (formerly the #ParentChildHomeProgram) early learning specialists, were in New York at the national ParentChild+ conference this week. They took a break from listening to and learning from the experts to take a pic with our friends from the King Urban Life Center ParentChild+ program. Buffalonians have to stick together! #earlychildhoodeducation #earlychildhood #HomeVisitingWorks
