NHMC Urges HUD to Require Broadband Infrastructure

in submitting comments supporting HUD’s proposal to require broadband infrastructure installation in HUD-funded properties. HUD currently supports over five million low-income families, among which 30 percent have school-aged children. Low-income families are far less likely to adopt broadband internet, with cost most often cited as the reason for lack of adoption. HUD’s proposal would help ensure that more low-income families have access to vital educational, economic, and health care resources via high-speed internet. NHMC also joined The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights in a letter supporting HUD’s proposed rules.]]>
