Low income families, especially immigrants, are the target of unprecedented federal actions that threaten their economic security in the short and long term.
Please join us on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 to learn how we can connect these families to real money and other resources, safely, to help them prepare for future emergencies or meet present needs, including:
- Tax refunds like the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC), and Child Care Tax Credit,
- Federal and state safety net benefits such as food stamps and cash assistance programs like CalWORKs, and
- Banking tools to receive refunds and cash assistance safely and without expensive check cashing and overdraft fees.
Experts from the National Immigration Law Center, International Rescue Committee, and Bay Area Legal Aid, among others will answer your questions about the value of these resources, eligibility criteria for immigrants and others, and any changes we should expect from executive actions.
Join CRC members and allies, United Way affiliates, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) providers, banks, social services agencies, and others to discuss how we can work together to help families secure critical resources safely.
