Event Description

 

What would you do with an additional $148 for groceries?

 

Currently in Connecticut, 62,000 older adults are receiving assistance with their grocery bill through SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits.  Another 27,000 older adults are eligible, but have not applied.  AOASCC recently received a grant through the National Council on Aging to help close this gap by 500 individuals. 


 

Many don't apply for SNAP because they think that they will only receive a small amount in benefits. The truth is that the average benefit in Connecticut is $148 per month.  Some don't think they are eligible. Actually, the eligibility limits have increased, so even if you had applied previously and been rejected, you might now be eligible.

 

AOASCC is here to help, call 203-785-8533 or contact us through this online form.  You can meet with us at locations throughout the New Haven area (please contact us for an appointment).

 

Mondays: Fair Haven Branch Library
Wednesdays: Cornell Scott Hill Health Clinic
Thursdays: Wilson Library
Fridays: Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
