Here’s a concept, something positive and a bit original to help people and there isn’t any controversy. What a deal!
State government and the Arkansas Interfaith Conference will work together in a pilot program to help Arkansans obtain their share of an estimated $ 280 million in federal and state benefits that are unclaimed each year, state and conference officials said Monday.
Dubbed the Benefit Bank of Arkansas, the program will make it easier for people to obtain benefits, they said. Volunteers and computer software will assist them. It starts next year.
The money is already out there, this program will help people access it.
Thanks to Joe for sending it along.
