We Want to Hear from You!
Please take a brief moment to answer a few questions about how we can present a forward-looking community vision for historic black communities in Durham. Our goal is to develop a Community Revitalization Blueprint in an effort to create invested vibrant communities throughout Durham’s minority locales within the next 3-5 years. The Blueprint will be the guiding document for community revitalization in the African American and minority communities located in Durham. Your valued input shared through this DCABP Inc. survey will help us determine the importance of the future visions for our communities and community members.
Thank you so much for your invaluable contribution to the Community Revitalization Project.
We look forward to putting your feedback into action!

Get Help With Monthly Internet Bills
The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program gives NC low-income households a discount on internet services so they don’t have to decide between purchasing broadband and other necessities as they work and learn at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Administered by the Federal Communications Commission, the program opened for enrollment on May 12, 2021.
Eligible NC households may receive a discount of up to $50 per month for their internet bill. That rises to $75 a month for broadband service on tribal lands. Households may also receive $100 to buy a laptop, desktop or tablet through their internet provider.
