Sign Up to Become A Supporting Organization

Support from organizations that serve or care about children living in poverty can help pass the legislation to make their lives.

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.

If you have questions about the Raising RI campaign, or would like to discuss how your organization can be more engaged, please contact Linda Katz at 401-465-5617
