- Tools and Templates
Date Published: July 2022
Partners are key to running a successful ConnectHomeUSA program and closing the digital divide. The Partnership Building Toolkit provides tips and tools that can help build strong ties to existing partners and strategies to build new ones. It is recommended to start with the Partnership Building Checklist, followed by the Partner Communication Strategy Guide. Then, ConnectHomeUSA staff can view the Stakeholder Mapping Template to help them visualize their current and prospective partners.
The toolkit also includes a Partnership Inventory Worksheet to track partners around the three-legs of the digital inclusion stool (connectivity, devices, and training) and a Sample Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Combined, these resources are designed to help staff develop a first-rate partnership-building strategy.
View the ConnectHomeUSA Playbook Toolkits and Guides page for the full collection of resources to help ConnectHomeUSA staff establish a comprehensive digital inclusion program in HUD-assisted communities.
