During 2004-2005, Connections for Tomorrow will provide $750,000 in capacity building and program development grants, technical assistance, and substantial in-kind support to community technology centers and programs. These centers use information and communications technology tools to provide a range of vital services (e.g. health, cultural, educational, and/or social services), directly to individual community members who would otherwise not have access. Eligible programs will have organizational budgets of less than $1 million (or $2 million for those providing overnight shelter).

Roughly 40 grants will be distributed, each valued at up to $21,500 (including $18,500 for proposed activities, $1,500 for professional development, and $1,500 to improve program access for people with disabilities).

Connections for Tomorrow, a collaboration of organizational partners, is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Compassion Capital Fund (http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/ccf). Partners include the Alliance for Technology Access (http://www.ataccess.org), Community Technology Centers’ Network (http://www.ctcnet.org), and TechMission (http://www.techmission.org).
