On February 14 (Valentine’s Day), Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Julius Genachowski joined Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan and representatives from the DC Housing authority at the Southwest Family Enhancement Center at Greenleaf Gardens to announce a new national digital literacy partnership that will benefit residents in public housing in DC and other cities throughout the country. The objective is to reduce the “digital divide” by making low-cost broadband internet access available on a larger scale. Greenleaf in SW DC was selected to publically introduce the initiative. Also involved in the partnership are Best Buy’s “Geek Squad” who will be training residents of public housing in DC and other cities, and Connect2Compete, which is helping make broadband internet available in public housing. Already, Syphax, James Creek and Greenleaf are being wired for Wi-Fi internet access.
