The Benefits Cliff: Register to Join Our Webinar

Join us for the January webinar!

As families climb from poverty to economic independence, they lose public benefits as their income increases. Unfortunately, there are points on the journey where earning even $1 more means the family will lose a benefit worth hundreds of dollars each month.  This phenomenon, known as the benefit cliff, can be a barrier to self-sufficiency for low income individuals.

This webinar, led by Emily Campbell, Associate Director of The Center for Community Solutions, will introduce participants to the benefit cliff and how it can impact low-income families.  Data will be presented which shows where Ohio working families would experience a cliff.  We will discuss how policy decisions in recent years have improved or deepened cliffs, and what it might take families to overcome these obstacles.
