Barriers to Benefits: A conversation about everyday hurdles
May 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
People with low income or lacking housing face a daunting variety of impediments to seeking and obtaining assistance. Indra J. Acharya, Consultant/Integrator for THRIVE, will facilitate a discussion with several unhoused people about the difficulties they encounter on a regular basis. These include problems connected with earning too much money, having excessive savings, no transportation, and an inability to apply online for help. These are compounded by the fact that each assistance program has its own limitations and requirements.
This presentation comes from the Montpelier Homelessness Task force and is supported by a THRIVE – Vermont Community Health Equity Partnership grant.
