Shanta Nunn-Baro, a 30-year fundraising veteran of North Little Rock Housing Authority, shared best practices and lessons learned that helped participants successfully secure funding for their CHUSA programs. Funds are essential to cover not only costs associated with connectivity, devices, and digital literacy training, but also the costs of dedicated staff to manage a successful digital inclusion program. Participants learned how North Little Rock Housing Authority successfully obtained financial commitments from both the public and private sectors.

Without resident participation, community efforts to accelerate Internet adoption can stall. Residents can be the most effective ambassadors for their community's digital inclusion program. Two CHUSA experts, Timothy Rogers of Wilson Housing Authority and Danita Wiggins of Albany Housing Authority, shared effective methods to engage residents to participate in training programs and as ambassadors for CHUSA program.
