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.
