Sharing your ConnectHomeUSA story with the wider community can help you connect with potential partners and funders and lay the foundation for a sustainable program. The ConnectHomeUSA Media Guide and Toolkit is designed to help you do this successfully! The Media Guide provides communication strategies to help ConnectHomeUSA staff amplify their work by engaging local media outlets and utilizing social media platforms effectively.
The Media Toolkit provides a Sample Communications Timeline covering a full year of program implementation as well as easy-to-use templates like the Event Communications Plan to help chart out the communications steps needed to successfully engage the media around an event you're planning. Additionally, the toolkit includes a Sample Press Release that can be downloaded and adapted for your own purposes.
