Event Description

Connecticut is seeing a huge increase in need as a result of the economic downturn. Calls for assistance 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 session will focus on two great online tools that provide benefits eligibility guidance to service providers, and tools that help to connect low- to moderate-income households with work support programs (SNAP/Food Stamps, WIC, HUSKY, LIHEAP, etc). Between the two multi-benefit pre-screening tools featured in this webinar, thousands of Connecticut households may be screened to find out what they may qualify for and how to apply.

The United Way 2-1-1 Navigator:
Designed by the United Way of Connecticut, the 2-1-1 Navigator is thought of as an interactive interview. It takes about 2 minutes to complete. First we ask some basic information. Next, we ask some more questions based on your first answers. You'll be surprised at how easy it is to screen yourself or your clients!

Once you are done, we will tell you which federal and state assistance programs you or your clients qualify for, and how to apply for them. Currently, the 2-1-1 Navigator screens for twenty-four different assistance programs; and there are plans to add new programs. The 2-1-1 Navigator can't promise you will qualify, but it can tell you if it's worth your time to apply. You don’t have to worry about privacy, the 2-1-1 navigator doesn’t require you to give your name or address.

Earn Benefits Online:
Connecticut Association for Human Services (CAHS) is partnering with Seedco, a New York based non-profit to bring EarnBenefits to Connecticut. EarnBenefits Online is a partnership between CAHS and eleven partner organizations in Connecticut to pre-screen their clients/customers for up to twelve work support/basic needs programs. This project began online in February and is now fully operating.

Breaking Down the Barriers to Health Equity: Q&A with La Tasha Barnwell

LISC Emerging Leaders Council member La Tasha Barnwell describes her work in public health and the imperative of a holistic strategy for closing the racial wealth gap.

From the Watts Rebellion to George Floyd, South LA Charts a New Path Toward Racial Justice

In an op-ed for Next City, Tunua Thrash-Ntuk, ED of LISC LA, and Hanna Love of the Brookings Institution trace the historical roots of community self-determination in South Los Angeles and argue that it's high time for public and private sector leaders to support the model for investment these activists have forged. They draw on the findings of their recent co-authored report on South LA's potential for equitable recovery in the wake of the Covid pandemic. Both are must-reads.

Dismantling Structural Racism in Community Development Finance

In an opinion piece for ImpactAlpha, LISC COO Annie Donovan draws on the expertise she honed as head of the CDFI Fund to illustrate the layered ways that BIPOC community development entities are locked out of federal tax credit allocations and other resources. "The disproportionate results reflect the same deeply seated structural barriers that prevent minority-owned enterprises from accessing credit in other parts of the economy," she writes, explaining that Congress, and the rest of us, must help remedy this inequity.
