The Northern Hilltowns Councils on Aging in Chesterfield, Worthington, Plainfield, Cummington, Goshen, Westhampton and Williamsburg, received a significant grant from the Executive Office of Elder Affairs. This funding lets us offer resources and services to people 60 and older in the seven hilltowns for a limited time. The TECH CONNECT program will lessen the digital divide by increasing digital literacy in our seven rural communities.
