HUD Neighborhood Networks Now in 50 States

With recent openings in Montana and South Dakota, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that HUD's Neighborhood Networks computer centers are now serving low-income residents in every state.

The centers serve residents of privately owned housing that is subsidized or insured by HUD. At the centers, residents can learn how to use computers and how to use those skills to find technology jobs. More than 550 centers are operating in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Another 700 centers are being planned.

"The centers will help people trapped by poverty today work their way into self-sufficiency tomorrow by acquiring computer skills to get new jobs in the new century,'' Cuomo said.
