EarnBenefits - New sites for benefit screening open

A couple of months ago, CAHS launched EarnBenefits Online (EBO), a new program to help people all across Connecticut get access to the public benefits programs they are eligible to receive. You can get more information on how the program works here, in our GNH Community Group.

To the three initial partners in New Haven (Christian Community Action, JUNTA and Catholic Charities) we are adding this week two more: New Life Corporation, in Ella Grasso Blvd, and the Workforce Alliance, that will offer this service at the OneStop centers in the GNH area. New Life should be able to start screening before the end of the week, with the OneStops coming online early May.

So if by any chance you have a client that wants to know if he or she is eligible for Medicaid, SAGA, SNAP or any of the programs on the DSS alphabet soup, and they need someone to fill the application for them and lend a hand with the paperwork, you know where to refer them:

- Christian Community Action
- JUNTA
- Catholic Charities (Centro San José)
- New Life Corporation
- (soon) One Stop Career centers.

Right now, EBO screen and fills applications for twelve benefits, including SNAP, Husky, Medicaid, TFA, SAGA and Care 4 Kids. We all know that the applications are gigantic - and EBO makes the whole process much easier.

Open Streets Project Revamped

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year. We bid a sad farewell to project co-founder, the Alliance for Biking & Walking, who are moving on to other things, and we happily welcomed a new partner, international Open Streets leader 8 80 Cities. We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.

In Flint, an Avenue Leading to Safety

For decades, the residents of Flint, Michigan have endured high rates of crime alongside devastating unemployment, depopulation and blight—and recently, a severe water crisis on top of that. But the energy and commitment of neighbors, business people and key anchor institutions are transforming the historic University Avenue corridor. Crime there, in turn, has plummeted. A Department of Justice community safety grant, with training and technical assistance from LISC, has ramped up those efforts and is helping make the corridor a model of problem-solving, and optimism, for all of Flint.

National Building Museum Features Innovative Chicago Development

LISC’s Meghan Harte takes a look at a new exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., that considers the future of housing design, with a particular eye to affordability and meeting the changing needs of families. It features a LISC-supported project in Chicago, the award-winning La Casa, which offers affordable apartments to university students in the city’s Pilsen community.

A Hive of Small Business Activity in Boston

In celebration of Small Business Saturday (Nov. 25), we're profiling emerging enterprises in the communities where we work that have benefited from LISC small business lending and support. In Boston, Northeastern University and LISC have launched the Impact Lending initiative to spur women- and minority-owned businesses and local economies that surround the university. Honeycomb Café, a bustling new locavore restaurant in South Boston’s Dorchester area, offers a picture of impact lending at its finest.
