Webinar: Stress Test: People, Technology, and the Safety Net in Response to COVID-19
The economic damage of COVID-19 has led millions of Americans to seek assistance from the safety net, which has exposed both the existing flaws in the public benefits system and the new challenges in serving a massive influx of people. What is it like to navigate this crush as both applicant and service provider? What are we learning about technology and policy that will help us rebuild a benefits system for this moment and the rest of the 21st Century? This digital event is the second in a series that will explore why addressing key household financial challenges is needed to make an equitable economic recovery.
