The health crisis of COVID-19 and subsequent effects on the U.S. economy have propelled to the spotlight the issue of financial security at the household level. Issues like paid leave, dependent care, housing instability, student loan debt, and debt collections were challenges to tens of millions of families across America long before the pandemic emerged – and if we don’t make key changes, they will dampen the economic recovery of our nation.
This digital event is the fifth in a series that will explore why addressing key household financial challenges is needed to make an equitable economic recovery. To view all of the events in our series, visit www.aspeninstitute.org/events/conversations-in-financial-security.
Time: 1-2 pm EDT
In a recent guidance note, the SEEP Network considers how best to support Savings Groups and their members during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how to effectively engage Savings Groups in community-level response efforts.
Three months into the global pandemic, what is being done to mitigate the impact of the health crisis on Savings Groups and their communities? How are Savings Groups and the organizations that work with them adapting – and to what effect? And how are they planning to build back better, such that both Savings Groups and the programs that support them are more resilient to future crises?
Join us for a webinar with CARE, Catholic Relief Services and the International Rescue Committee to explore their response and recovery efforts related to Savings Groups, including health messaging, the integration of new technologies, cash and voucher assistance, new and potential partnerships, and more.
Time: 9:00 AM – 10:15 AM EDT
