Community Action and the Proposed Changes to the Official Poverty Measure (OPM)

May 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

On May 7th, the Office of Management and Budget issued a request for comment on on a proposal to adjust how the Official Poverty Measure (OPM) is calculated.The proposal could result in an artificially low estimate of the number of children and families who fall below the official poverty line. This could eventually make fewer people eligible for benefits such as SNAP, Medicaid, and ACA subsidies, as well as programs like CSBG, Head Start, LIHEAP, Weatherization, and many others. This webinar will give an overview of the proposal and the possible impacts on Community Action. We will also share suggested comments and templates that your agency can use to officially weigh in the proposal if you choose. Comments on the Federal Register Notice are due June 21.
