Benefits Access & the Benefits Cliff: A Briefing for Connecticut Funders

Connecticut Asset Funders Network invites funders to join us for a robust discussion about Benefits Access and the Benefits Cliff. Connecticut funders are investing in efforts to support workforce development and expand access to benefits to support economic stability. However, as family incomes rise, it can trigger a partial or complete loss of benefits. The benefits cliff can leave families financially worse off since their income isn’t low enough to qualify for benefits, but not high enough to afford their needs.

Please join Amy Peltier, Director Community and Economic Development at East Hartford Works! and Sarah Griffen, Strategic Planning, Workforce and Policy Consultant as they lead an interactive discussion with Connecticut funders to explore philanthropic strategies to increase employment and income and benefits access that improve family financial well-being. The meeting also includes a presentation of a suite of tools that allows families to see exactly where they might run into a benefits cliff and develop a customized plan for their individual situations.

This session was designed based on feedback from Connecticut funders. We value your contribution and look forward to your participation. This program will be held virtually.

This meeting is intended for Connecticut funders working on Guaranteed Income, Workforce Development, Quality Jobs and Financial Health.
