Cox Connect2Compete opens a world of opportunity for families that have a K-12 student and receive government assistance.
Surveys indicate that in the United States, more than 80% of all teachers believe that online learning improves education. While many consider access to technology at home to be critically important to the quality of a student’s education, it is alarming that one-third of all students in America, mostly from low-income households, lack that access in their home settings.
Cox’s Connect2Compete program is open to families with K-12 children who qualify for free or reduced school lunch through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). In addition, Cox has partnered with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to support its ConnectHome initiative. Families with K-12 children who live in Public Housing, as well as K-12 families who receive Tenant-Based Vouchers, Project-Based Vouchers or Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) are eligible for Cox’s Connect2Compete discounted internet service offer.
With Connect2Compete is helping to make a difference in lives of students in our communities. If you know a family who might be eligible, visit www.connect2compete.org/Cox or call (855) 222-3252.
