"Friends of DHA is one of five Colorado agencies selected to receive national grant funding"
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that it has selected Denver Community Ventures - dba Friends of DHA, as one of five agencies in Colorado to receive a grant in the amount of $125,000 grant pursuant to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).
“ACP directly influences Denver Housing Authority (DHA) families in desperate need of digital access,” Annie Hancock, Director of Resident and Community Connections said. “The provision of affordable internet through the ACP is the first step to help DHA residents remain in communication compliance for federal and state benefit updates, job applications, online school, and health care telehealth models.”
These FCC Funds will be utilized to conduct digital campaigns, door-to-door canvassing, operate phone banks, distribute direct mail, and host ACP application enrollment and outreach events. This funding is a major opportunity to move forward Friends of DHA’s digital inclusion plan.
