Connected Community Engagement Program

Connect My Community

Connect My Community

Every community can benefit from improving access to jobs, education, healthcare, and more. But no two communities get there in the same way.

The Connected Community Engagement program provides a way for local elected officials and community stakeholders in healthcare, education, business, and more to work together and chart a course for accelerating local access, adoption, and use of high-speed internet and related technologies.
