Successful ConnectHomeUSA programs have a variety of committed partners to support their work. In fact, these partnerships may essentially already be a coalition without being formally recognized as such. Digital equity coalitions are growing both in popularity and importance. And now, by working with state broadband offices, they can play a critical role in where new federal broadband funding is awarded. The Coalition Building Best Practices Guide uses best practices gleaned from two ConnectHomeUSA communities to cover key concepts and steps to successful coalition building.
Additionally, the guide provides an in-depth look at the digital inclusion coalitions established by the Jersey City Housing Authority and San Antonio Housing Authority, as well as summaries and links to other digital inclusion coalitions around the country.
