What is Chicago Connected?

Chicago Connected was created to ensure students are equipped to participate in remote learning and increase their digital literacy. The program will provide households with high-speed internet for four years by directly paying for internet service for families that are most in need, leveraging Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) to support enrollment in the program, and providing skills development training.

This groundbreaking initiative is generously funded by Chicago’s philanthropic community who has raised $47 million for this effort.
