Attention CD 9 Families: Apply for FREE Internet for Three Years

In an effort to bridge the digital divide in underserved communities, the SoLa I CAN Foundation recently launched a ”1000 for 1000" campaign, which will supply 1,000 families in South LA with FREE high-speed Internet for 1,000 days, providing much needed support for students and families disconnected from their schools and the world.

The onset of the stay-at-home orders revealed a common thread within black and brown communities: far too many low-income students do not have reliable access to WiFi. Nearly one year later, many in the South LA community still lack Internet and technology, with recent data showing nearly 50 percent of households in South Los Angeles do not have broadband Internet access, making it the least Internet-connected region in LA County. 

If you have kids who receive free lunch from school and/or SNAP, you may be eligible for this program. For more information, email [email protected] or click here to apply.
