Benefits Cliff Meeting 3/12/20
Updated: Mar 24, 2020
The Connecticut legislature passed a much needed increase in minimum wage last year. But, there are many systems and structures statewide that must now adjust to the new income realities. If adjustments aren't made to accommodate, families are at risk of losing critical supports and still not making a living wage. These supports include: husky A, husky B, SNAP, Head Start etc...
Join us March 12 at 9 am at the deKoven House in Middletown to discuss the risks, the work being done at the state level, and how you can help support the families you work with, both in person and through legislative action. Other factors to discuss include EITC, Raising Medicaid A, and the new Public Charge rules.
