Neighborhood Learning Alliance (formerly known as Wireless Neighborhoods)

Pittsburgh CONNECTS

To provide predominantly low-income, African American communities in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with better
Internet access and online tools, Wireless Neighborhoods is proposing to establish four public computer
centers to serve six of Pittsburgh’s economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. The centers, which intend to
serve the East Liberty, Garfield, Larimer, Homewood, Hill District, and Hill Top neighborhoods, would allow
residents to check out laptops for use at the centers, or to borrow them overnight once they complete a 40-hour
training program. Pittsburgh CONNECTS also proposes a laptop lease-to-buy program through which members
could purchase laptops on zero percent interest plans after completing their broadband adoption training.
