Based on the site description and interviews with leadership, what are the highest priorities for this project? What components of their technology plan must be successful? What cannot fail?  What must not change even as the project is implemented? Where are they able to experiment or absorb risk? Any focus groups or testing results can be described here, as well.

Salt & Light currently operates as a food and clothing bank in north Champaign. It also offers a financial literacy program for community members, focusing on personal money management, counseling, and short-term assistance. Salt & Light is working in conjunction with C-U Citizen Access to create a community information and technology center where community members will have access to the Internet, software, and instruction.

The goal of this computer lab is to create strong relationships within the community, provide education and assistance to community members, and encourage active communication and the exchange of ideas within the community.
