The Hartford Field Office recently donated excess computer equipment to 9 educational organizations. A total of 54 computers, six printers, two scanners and other equipment were distributed to CT faith and community-based organizations.

The current system for distribution is through the use of the Computers for Learning (CFL) website (http://www.computers.fed.gov/Public/home.asp). Educational and non-profit organizations register through CFL to receive surplus equipment. Computer equipment is donated to registered CT organizations having an affiliation with HUD.

Recipient organizations will use the computers for a wide range of educational activities including the provision of training to children and their parents; computer repair training; support of a local museum's technological programs; support of Scholastic Achievement Test (SAT) preparation courses; resume writing; college essay preparation; small business development and research activities.
