Sign Up to Join Our Campaign to Lift Families Out of Deep Poverty
By signing below you agree to be counted as a Rhode Islander who supports the changes proposed in the bills and to receive communication from The Campaign about how to help achieve passage. We will not publish your name.
I understand that the campaign will:
• Increase the amount of cash assistance from 30% of the federal poverty level to 50% FPL, lifting families out of deep poverty. The monthly benefit for a family of 3 would rise from $554 to $915. The benefit would be adjusted for inflation.
• Provide a yearly clothing allowance of $100 to all children in the family.
• Allow a parent to attend CCRI for 2 years to increase earning potential.
• Exclude earnings for 6 months when a parent starts a job to help ease transition to work.
