human-I-T is about helping you become a leader in the way E-Waste is managed. Sending your technology to recyclers to be shredded or shipped overseas is no longer enough. Give yourself the opportunity to make a difference in your community by donating your unwanted technology so it may be reused by other humans.

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Obama Administration launched ConnectHome to accelerate broadband adoption by children and families, living in HUD-assisted housing across the nation.

ConnectHome is a platform for collaboration between local governments, public housing agencies, Internet service providers, philanthropic foundations, nonprofit organizations, and other relevant stakeholders that will produce local solutions for narrowing the digital divide.

Our work seeks to:

  1. Make broadband Internet more adoptable by building new models to provide broadband infrastructure and to offer residents free or discounted service.
  2. Make broadband Internet more valuable by giving residents localized, free, and culturally sensitive training in essential digital literacy skills that will allow them to effectively utilize high-speed Internet.
  3. Make broadband Internet adoption sustainable by providing devices and technical support to our residents and by refocusing existing HUD resources to supplement and sustain the work of ConnectHome.
