A new "ABC" Automatic Benefits Calculator has been developed by the CT Association for Community Action Agencies (www.CAFCA.org) and is currently being rolled out statewide at all thirteen agencies. "ABC" has been added to the TEAM website (www.TEAMInc.org). Anyone may use it to test eligibility for public benefits. A phone number or an email address is required to move beyond the first screen.
The ABC link is at the bottom of our webpage, and one will need to scroll down to find it (some may need to use CTRL/F5 to refresh their screens if it does not appear).
The ABC also sends the contact information of each inquirer to the local Community Action Agency for follow-up. This feature is not currently noted but will be soon, when the next updating of the Calculator is completed.
Our staff have tested it, and we are very pleased with its functionality.
