Affordable Access PromotionPlease join us to get every household CONNECTED AND COUNTED!
We’re writing to invite you to partner with us to ensure that all low income households are Connected and Counted! Our ask is that you incorporate the distribution of informational fliers (English and Spanish) into your services, mailings, emails, website, packets or events.
Hagar Services Coalition and El Concilio of San Mateo County have partnered with the statewide non-profit The California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF) whose mission is to close the “Digital Divide” in California through accelerating the adoption of broadband to underserved communities. Our goal is to establish collaborative working relationships with public agencies and organizations that serve low income households in San Mateo County to share information about affordable Internet access options that increase the number of low-income households with Internet services at home. Internet access at home is critical to achieving academic and economic success and to access health and human related services. Students, families, job-seekers, and those seeking medical or other services will all benefit. The current school closures due to (COVID-19) require children to study online at home and parents to work at home. Having Internet access at home is more critical now than ever before.
Attached are new flyers (see below) in English and Spanish that include a Comcast and AT&T low-cost limited time offer of two months free. As this is a limited offer, please forward to your constituents, clients and networks as soon as possible!
This year is 2020 Census Count! Let’s combine our work to inform everyone to apply for low cost internet and a computer for their homes to become connected and complete the Census Application online to be counted. It’s important that everyone is both connected and counted!
Please join us to get every household CONNECTED AND COUNTED!
I look forward to receiving your response to the invitation.
