Webinar from CAHS: How To Help CT Low-Income Families Gain Access to Federal Aid
From our partner, the Connecticut Association for Human Services
Right now, thousands of low-income Connecticut families are blocked from accessing millions of Federal dollars.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IRS sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites were forced to shut down, leaving low-income taxpayers without their standard way of filing tax returns or qualifying for Federal assistance programs. Operating in public spaces like libraries, community centers, and colleges, nearly 60 VITA sites were closed statewide, blocking access to these vital funds.
On May 18, 2020 at 2:00pm, CAHS is holding a webinar to train and inform volunteers and organizations on how to help these most at-risk families.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
How the new virtual VITA sites are opening the door to these vital benefits
What access to funds means for CT and the underserved in our State
How to help individuals navigate the new, but complicated, CT Pandemic Unemployment Assistance benefits
How you and your organization can help low-income families maximize these benefits
