The Department will hold a webinar discussing how organizations can ensure that tenants are able to access their stimulus payments. According to an email sent by the Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH), “[t]he CARES Act . . . includes stimulus payments to help families deal with the economic impacts from the COVID-19 crisis.” The email also states that “Americans risk missing out on the stimulus payments provided through the recent CARES Act . . . [and] [i]n order to receive the stimulus payment they must file a form by October 15, 2020 in order to receive it this year, or file a 2020 tax return next year to receive it in 2021.
The email includes the following resources for the webinar:
- CBPP’s Get it Back campaign has also developed resources that organizations can use to support EIP outreach work including FAQs, an informational flyer, sample social media posts, and outreach templates (blog post, press release, and emails).
