Broadband and Affordable Housing
May 3, 2016
Broadband access in affordable housing is increasingly acknowledged as an important tool for lower-income adults and families. This webinar included discussion about broadband in affordable housing. NHC research associate Mindy Ault presented case studies of two affordable housing organizations—Eden Housing in California and the Housing Authority of the City of Austin (HACA) in Texas—that have provided this resource for their residents. Catherine Crago of HACA also shared more detailed information about HACA’s program. There will be time built in to take your questions as well.
