This initiative has three parts: 1) funding summer internships in the technology field, 2) providing a free co-working space for residents to access internet and other technological resources, and 3) providing a year of free public WiFi in Dillehay Courts.
The goal of the Smart Homes Kick Start Project is to reduce the cost burden of high utility bills and resource waste through weatherization, training, and smart technology in partnership with service providers and innovative companies.
Through the Healthy Communities program participants in the North End of Charlotte learn how health and the environment impact each other and how proper waste management can decrease these impacts.
This project was set up to maximize community influence and decision making. The community has conceptualized and is working to implement their own Farmers Market in the North End to meet the need for fresh produce in the community.
