Chicago Connected

A Groundbreaking Initiative to Provide Free High-Speed Internet For Families in Need

Community-Based Organizations

Community-based organizations (CBOs) are critical partners in the Chicago Connected initiative.

CBOs will conduct outreach to families to support enrollment in the Chicago Connected program, provide newly-connected households with digital literacy and skills development training, and connect households with other critical resources.

After a transparent and competitive selection process led by CPS parents, educators, administrators, and grant-making experts, 35 community partners were selected to support the Chicago Connected initiative. Check back soon for a list of points of contact for each community partner.
