Closing the Divide

About the Program
Deep East Texas Council of Governments Regional Housing Authority (DETCOG) is happy to be one of the communities chosen to participate in the 2018 ConnectHomeUSA digital inclusion program.
ConnectHomeUSA (formerly ConnectHome Nation) is a movement to bridge the digital divide for public housing residents in the United States under the leadership of EveryoneOn. Through this digital inclusion program, we aim to bridge the digital gap by assisting our clients in receiving devices such as laptops, tablets, and computers. These devices will not only allow residents the opportunity to access internet services but will enable them to continue their personal and professional growth.
Additionally, DETCOG will provide computer classes to strengthen the resident's digital literacy and efficiency when using their device and to explore online resources.
