Envision programs are built around you. Around your needs and your goals. We know that one size doesn’t fit all and that individuals and families need different supports at different times.
Who Is Eligible to Apply?
A family or individual in a household that struggles financially, working and earning above the Federal Poverty Level, but not enough to afford a bare-bones household budget. Examples: children eligible for free and reduced lunch, a family of 4 earning less than $52,400/year, a family of 3 earning less than $43,440/ year, a family of 2 earning less than $34,480/ year, an individual earning less than $25,520/ year.
May be eligible for SNAP but earns enough to no longer be eligible for the safety net of social service benefits.
In the age range of 18-64 with no conditions that prevent them from improving economically.
Likely employed in service-related industries like childcare, grocers, or home health care, and jobs at our community’s largest employers- food service, housekeeping, or maintenance.
Earns hourly wages and may not have access to benefits such as retirement and health insurance.
May have a credit score of less than 700, or no credit score.
May have a debt ratio greater than 40% due to the lack of access to affordable loans.
What Will I Be Required to Do?
If accepted for a participating service, Envision clients will be required to sign a participation agreement. Clients will have to share household income, credit scores, and other demographic information each year for 3 years. This will allow us to determine eligibility but will also allow us to demonstrate that this important work is providing real solutions to individuals and families for achieving financial stability.
How Is This Different From Other Programs
For the first time in our community, a group of non-profit partners will use shared data to support families in accessing services from multiple agencies working together to serve their financial needs. In addition, due to systemic and historical greater economic disparities than White or other minority families. We look forward to sharing our success over the next 5 years to demonstrate there is a way to collaborate and make a difference.
