What's New at IHS?
IHS, 2-1-1 HELPLINE and several partners are working with T-Mobile's Project 10Million to connect local students to the internet via free Wi-Fi hotspots generously provided by the company.

To qualify, a household must have at least one K-12 student in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

Over five years, T-Mobile has committed to supporting 10 million eligible families who are enrolled in the National School Lunch program. Once enrolled in Project 10Million, these families will receive 100GB of FREE internet data per year for five years and a FREE mobile hotspot, plus the opportunity to purchase devices at a low cost.

To collaborate with IHS, 2-1-1 HELPLINE and the growing coalition of local partners, email provider@ihsnet.org.
If we don't know, then we can't refer people to your organization and its events. Let us know about your back-to-school events now, so we can ensure that your supplies and support reach the people who need it most as students return to the learning environment.

Email us at 211helpline@ihsnet.org to be included in our referral database.
