In the time of social distancing and virtual schooling, the digital divide threatens the ability of all children to learn and excel at school. HACC is dedicated to bridging that divide, and has committed over $450,000 in CARES Act money to cover the cost of broadband internet access for 1,200 families with children in school for the entire 2020-21 school year.

The Human Services department also followed up with participants to determine whether or not each of their children had access to an e-learning device. To fill that need, HACC distributed 900 Chromebooks to K-12 students. These Chromebooks are a permanent gift to families, ensuring that students and their families continue to have access to the economic, educational, and social opportunities that home computers offer.

Wishing you peace, love, and joy this holiday season. From the Housing Authority of Cook County.
