Our Strategies

To drive lasting and equitable change, we use the power of data, technology, and policy to create solutions that help people today while building a better system for tomorrow.

We proactively help people enroll in benefits.

  • Provide data-driven outreach to those eligible for but not receiving assistance with food, healthcare, and more
  • Offer one-on-one application assistance over the phone through our benefit centers
  • Leverage text messaging to provide reminders and personalized financial aid enrollment assistance

We equip other sectors to connect people to assistance.

  • Help healthcare entities connect their members to benefit programs
  • Connect students to assistance in partnership with higher education institutions
  • Provide community-based organizations with the tools they need to serve eligible people efficiently

We help government serve people better.

  • Provide policy guidance and technical assistance to government leaders on specific challenges and opportunities
  • Build playbooks, toolkits, and guidebooks for state and local agency staff and the broader benefits access field
  • Support states in making comprehensive changes

We increase solutions to improve access to assistance.

  • Engage with specific populations to learn how to best serve them
  • Examine the efficacy and efficiency of new ways to connect people to benefits
  • Work with research institutions to evaluate the impact of benefits
