The Federal Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program and its Partnerships: $1.1 Billion In 2018
Water and energy program funding has been critical for families impacted by COVID-19. Watch this national webinar to hear from colleagues in Arizona on how they have risen to the challenge, and are innovating with technology to ensure a more safe and streamlined program model.
We know that COVID-19 has had a major impact on the lives of our most vulnerable families. One area of life that will be affected by the pandemic long after its health and economic impacts have begun to recede is families’ personal finances. The pandemic has stressed many families’ finances and credit in profound ways. Late rent payments, potential evictions, accruing utility/water payment balances, credit card debt and other financial challenges have spiraled. What rights do people have? What tools/resources can help Community Action staff as we work with families to provide hope that they can build a solid financial future? The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has many resources available to help, and this webinar provides an overview of these resources. Learn how!
