In October 2013, based largely on our success as a KEYSPOT in the Freedom Rings project (see below for details), Turning the TIDE was selected as one of only ten Public Computer Centers (or KEYSPOTs) citywide to be funded through the 2014 program year.  Funding consists of an $11,000 grant, technical support and training for our Public Computer Center staff.  Continued funding for the Turning the TIDE KEYSPOT was provided by Drexel University, The Mayor’s Commission on Literacy, the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Parks and Recreation and the Office of Innovation and Technology.
