Webinar Wednesday for Advocates and Online Benefits Applications!

From our friends at the Coalition for Human Needs

The Coalition for Access and Opportunity is a collaboration of advocates, researchers, and practitioners working to improve access and coordination of the range of federal income and work supports.

The Coalition is sponsoring a series of webinars. The next one will be Wednesday, May, 21 from 2:00PM to 3:00PM focusing on online public benefit applications. Online applications can be very helpful to working participants and those with limited mobility; however, when poorly designed, they can act as barriers to access. Many states are in the process of revising their systems due to the changes required by the Affordable Care Act, so this is a critical time to pay attention to online applications in your state.

During this webinar, participants will hear from Ty Jones of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, who will discuss tools and tips advocates can use to engage their state on online application concerns.
