Technology Assistance Available to Low Income Families

On December 16, Governor JB Pritzker and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle announced a first of its kind statewide initiative to expand digital access for low-income households in Illinois. Through a unique partnership with PCs for People and other community partners, the Connect Illinois Computer Equity Network will help put refurbished computer equipment and low-cost internet service into the hands of Illinois households in need.

To be eligible, residents’ income must be below 200% of the poverty level or they must be enrolled in an income-based government assistance program, such as free and reduced lunch, Medicaid, or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

More information is available on the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Expansion’s website.
