Event Description

The Connecticut Association for Human Services (CAHS), a statewide non-profit organization, invites you to attend a free upcoming webinar on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)-formerly Food Stamps. We will be inviting representatives from the USDA, the Connecticut Department of Social Services, and other national organizations to participate as well. This will be a terrific opportunity to learn about SNAP (or a great refresher).

Connecticut, like the rest of the country, is seeing a huge increase in need as a result of the economic downturn. SNAP participation has risen over 30% in the past year. Calls to our office have been coming in from all corners of the state, and from many people who have never had to seek assistance before. It is critical that we all expand our reach and get the word out to as many eligible people as we can. This webinar will help us to reach further and brainstorm new ways to promote SNAP access.

Who should attend?
Anyone who works with lower income clients or customers will benefit from learning how to help increase awareness of SNAP. This includes: municipal social service employees, the faith community, food pantry operators, housing authority representatives, business leaders, caseworkers, outreach workers, and educators, to name a few.

Why should you attend?
Did you know that only about 65% of eligible Connecticut residents are currently participating in SNAP? That means that tens of thousands of lower income people in our state are not taking advantage of this valuable nutrition program. The average Connecticut SNAP recipient currently receives over $100 per month in benefits, which provides a tremendous increase in spending power. This workshop will help you to think about new ways to reach clients and customers to make sure that they are receiving all of the benefits that they qualify for.

Please register as soon as possible, and SEND YOUR QUESTIONS IN ADVANCE. We can tailor the presentation to address your questions.

Square, Inc. Invests $25M in LISC Black Economic Development Fund

The mobile payment company Square Inc. is the latest firm to invest in LISC’s innovative Black Economic Development Fund, which is supporting Black-led lenders, institutions and businesses across the country. “With its impact investment and committed partnership, Square is helping us fight the racial wealth gap and drive lasting gains for American families and communities,” said Maurice A. Jones, LISC president and CEO. Square joins Netflix and Costco as the earliest investors in the fund.

This Year, Back-to-School Is Not What It Used to Be

This fall, all schools are struggling to devise ways to safely educate students in the midst of the pandemic. The charter schools whose facilities LISC has helped fund and guide are no different. Yvonne Nolan, who directs LISC’s charter schools financing work, checks in with some of our partner schools, who are taking cues from their communities to forge a new kind of education, and points out the ways CDFIs can help with this difficult process.

There’s No Time to Wait to End the Legacy of Redlining

In a powerful, truth-telling op-ed, LISC San Diego executive director Ricardo Flores shows how his city must take intentional action to throw off the Jim Crow-era legacy of redlining that still prevents economic mobility for many San Diegans. That local example, and Flores’ arguments, are applicable to cities and towns all across the country. It’s imperative and high time that all municipalities heed the message.
