In the 21st century, digital inclusion is a necessity for equitable education, workforce development, self-sufficiency, and quality of life. Since October 2018, JCHA has been part of the fourth cohort of the ConnectHome initiative, working closely with EveryoneOn and HUD to help bridge the digital divide for public housing residents. As part of this effort, JCHA is committed to making computer devices, high speed internet, and training programs available to as many JCHA public housing sites as possible. If you would like to add your voice to the conversation of what digital inclusion will look like at JCHA, please RSVP for our second Digital Inclusion Convening.
The Jersey City Housing Authority (JCHA) was formed in 1938 to provide decent, affordable housing for low-income families, seniors, and persons with disabilities. JCHA is New Jersey’s second largest public housing authority, serving over 18,000 residents. We are responsible for the administration of approximately 7,100 housing units in every ward of Jersey City, including approximately 2,500 public housing units and over 4,600 Housing Choice Vouchers.
