Two years ago, Barrington 220, with the support of the Barrington Area Development Council, entered into a partnership with Comcast to bring wireless Internet service into the homes of eligible Barrington 220 families. After two earlier iterations of the application process, we have launched Project Horsepower 3.0.
The program continues to serve families eligible for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and who do not currently have full-priced Comcast Internet service at home (current Comcast Internet Essentials customers are welcome to apply). Families who have Internet service through another provider (such as AT&T) are also welcome to apply, regardless of the level of service they currently have. Families that are unsure of the level of Internet service status at home can still apply and Comcast will help to evaluate the applications and will advise applicants of findings.
Applications returned to Joann Fullman at BHS will be processed according to the following timetable:
