Dead Zones: A Conversation on the Digital Divide, Housing, & COVID-19

November 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Highspeed internet is now essential for academic success, workforce participation, and maintaining social connections. But Franklin County’s low-income residents face extraordinary challenges to connectivity that exaggerate long-standing opportunity and equity gaps.

AHACO’s most recent report “Dead Zones: The Collision of the Digital Divide, Housing Affordability, & the Coronavirus Pandemic” highlighted the role of the affordable housing industry in this conversation.

Now, we invite you to come learn about the issue and programs that are available to help struggling households. Join an engaging dialogue that explores what the digital divide means from the perspective of public, private, and nonprofit experts from here in Central Ohio. And help us brainstorm answers to this growing problem.
