ConnectHomeUSA Virtual Summit

October 25, 2022 - October 27, 2022

HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing is sponsoring a 3-day virtual summit on timely digital inclusion topics for ConnectHomeUSA (CHUSA) communities, public housing authorities (PHAs), tribes, multifamily housing owners and operators, public-private stakeholders, and anyone interested in digital inclusion. Participants will hear from a wide range of organizations, from federal agencies tasked with administering new broadband funding programs, private-sector stakeholders who will provide updates about their programs, to CHUSA communities that have innovative programs to share!

The summit will feature training webinars and breakout sessions which will allow participants to engage directly with speakers and leave with tools for continued growth. Learn more about ConnectHomeUSA.
