Many persons experiencing homelessness have limited access to computing resources which can perpetuate their situation. Some shelters, libraries, and other organizations can provide access to these resources with limited capacity, but this limited access is an impactful disadvantage to those in homeless situations.

The federal government administers homeless assistance grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) Program.

This program “is designed to promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, and State and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families…; promote access to and effect utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families, and optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.”

On average HUD awards around $2B per year in grants to homelessness related programs
