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.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Institutional Precipitation

Institutions can enable citizen action if they can be a precipitant rather than a programmatic intervener. A precipitating action avoids defining for neighbors what should be done, how it should be done and who should do it. Instead, it acts to precipitate citizens performing these three actions.

An Electrician Plugs into a Promising Career, With Room to Shine

Seasonal job insecurity meant financial stability was usually just out of reach for Antonio Gregory and his family. But last year, after connecting with a LISC-funded Bridges to Career Opportunity program in Detroit, Gregory got the certifications, financial education and support he was looking for, to advance in work and in life.

Financial Education is a Key to Success—for Our Youth, and Our Economy

In an op-ed for Yahoo! Finance, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones hit home the value of financial literacy as an essential skill on the path to financial wellbeing for all Americans—and to a healthy U.S. economy. Thinking back to his own childhood and the lessons in money management he absorbed working on his family’s farm, Jones calls for the public and private sectors to join forces and connect underserved youth to the kind of financial education that can make the American Dream a reality.
