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.

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.
