July 16 2020 Coalition Membership Meeting Agenda Highlights

Statewide Eviction Moratorium

  • The temporary statewide moratorium on evictions is set to expire August 1, which if not extended will put thousands in our community at risk of homelessness. We will be joined by attorneys with the Housing Justice Project to explain the moratorium and review the racially disproportionate impact of eviction laws in our community. Then housing policy experts with the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance will tell us what is being done to strengthen tenant protections locally, and what we can do to help keep our community housed

JumpStart Seattle Advocacy Update

  • The work is not done! Councilmembers are discussing the spending plan during the remainder of July, and the Mayor needs to sign the tax legislation passed by council. We are specifically urging councilmembers to maintain the focus in the JumpStart spending plan of at least 70% of the funding to create deeply affordable homes, including permanent supportive homes for those who need them. Please send emails to the Mayor and your City Councilmembers now.

Financial Empowerment Training for Homeless Service Providers 

  • Presented in partnership with Hopelink, the Coalition is offering a training for homeless service providers based around the “Your Money, Your Goals” toolkit. We will be previewing this training on Thursday, which will cover topics such as navigating credit reports, earning income while maintaining public benefit eligibility and accessible banking services.

Mockingbird Society Youth Leadership Summit Presentation

  • Hear from youth advocates about the Mockingbird Society’s Annual Youth Leadership Summit and get a sneak preview of some of the topics that will be covered at the event.

Pandemic EBT Benefits: July 8 2020

Click here for a copy of the PowerPoint used in the above presentation

The Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program (P-EBT) is a one-time award available to families with children who qualify for free or reduced-price meals through the school they attend. Families with children eligible for free and reduced price meals may be able to receive as much as $399 per child in this benefit. This benefit does not consider immigration status and is not subject to the Public Charge Rule. This means that P-EBT is one of the few benefits available to undocumented communities excluded from much of the COVID relief funds so far. Click here to review the program in more detail

With schools closed for the summer and deadlines fast approaching, we are concerned that struggling families may miss out on this crucial support.

To Apply:

  • Households enrolled in free or reduced-price meals apply for P-EBT through the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). Eligible household can apply online at www.washingtonconnection.org
  • Households can also apply over the phone by calling 1-877-501-2233. Due to state budget cuts, DSHS will be taking furlough days every Monday through the end of July. Families can still apply online, however those requiring phone assistance will have to reach out Tuesday through Friday between 8am and 5pm.

Acknowledgement and Reflection

Juneteenth Week 2020 is a week long celebration hosted by the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, Black Lives Matter – Seattle/King County, Tabor 100 and the FW Black Collective.

Our purpose is to honor and remember a special milestone in black history: June 19, 1865. On this day, African Americans forced into slavery in the United States were officially and legally free (ish).

Census 2020 Updates

Help folks you work with complete the Census. The deadline is now October 31, but we encourage people to fill out the Census as soon as possible.

People can complete the Census in three ways:

  • Onlinehttps://2020census.gov
    • Households would have had a Census ID mailed to them, but if someone does not have one because they don’t have a residential location or they no longer have the code, they can say that they don’t have a Census ID and still fill out the census
    • There will be a check box for “I do not have a street address” and then a question asking if someone was experiencing homelessness on April 1, 2020. After that people can provide a description of where they were staying, or a city.
  • Phone: 844-330-2020 – language support available in other languages – help someone find their language number to call by going to 2020census.gov and clicking How to Respond, or go to https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond/responding-by-phone.html
  • Mail in paper forms – for households who didn’t respond by mid-April, people should have received a paper form in the mail. Other than that, unless your organization is working with the Census Bureau directly to have paper forms, it is best to help people fill out the census online or via the phone.
    • In-person non-response follow-up to households who have not completed the Census is currently scheduled for August 11 – October 31.

City/State/Federal Budget Advocacy

  • Federal Action
    • Take Action Link https://nlihc.secure.force.com/actions/TakeActionNew?actionId=AR00928
    • The House of Representatives passed the “Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act” on May 15, which includes NLIHC’s top priorities to ensure housing stability during and after the coronavirus pandemic for people experiencing homelessness and our lowest-income neighbors.
  • State Budget Forecast and upcoming advocacy
    • Email your Washington state lawmakers: Urge them to prevent cuts to critical affordable housing, homelessness, and public benefit programs by raising progressive revenue.  Washington faces a budget shortfall of at least $7 billion over the next three years. State lawmakers must balance the budget based on these projections, but they must not repeat the mistakes of the past by cutting core services. Insist that they raise revenue through progressive measures, and protect programs that support health, safety, and housing. 
    • Take Action Link: https://housingalliance.salsalabs.org/nobudgetcuts/index.html 
  • Defunding the Police
  • City of Seattle 2020 Budget Balancing Package and Progressive Revenue Proposals
  • Get ready to SPEAK UP during the week of June 22

Discounted Telephone Service Programs Updates due to COVID-19 – updated 5/15/2020

UPDATED 05/15/2020: List of Lifeline Supported Providers: Click here to see if you qualify for a Lifeline phone, then contact one of the below approved area providers for next steps. Thank you to Michael-Hall Young and his team at the Healthcare for the Homeless Network for sharing this information.

  • Access Wireless – apply online or via mail, takes about 7-9 business days to process applications if apply online
  • Assurance – apply online or via mail, takes about 5-7 business days to process applications if you apply online
  • TerraCom Wireless – Apply via phone, takes about 3-5 business days to get phones out to clients. cell phone service only.
  • enTouch – Apply via website/mail, clients must provide phones – bring unlocked phone (no guarantee to work), get phone from trusted partner, or purchase for ~$50 from enTouch, takes 5 days to approve application & 7-10 days to ship SIM card
  • Safelink – Apply online or by phone, clients must provide unlocked phone, takes about 7-10 days to process applications (if apply online)

Low Cost Telephone Access: As social service agencies close their offices and transition to remote case management to meet Public health recommendations, access to affordable phones is more important than ever. The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), in conjunction with Lifeline have adopted some changes to make it easier for people to access discounted telephone service. The Coalition will update this as we gather additional information, if you have anything to add please email Jason

Lifeline: A federal program that provides discounted phone and internet service to qualifying low income households. To qualify, a household must be at or below 135% Federal Poverty Limit or be enrolled in a program such as SNAP, SSI or Medicaid. Lifeline is awarded by household not individual, and a household can qualify if they have a dependent minor child who qualifies for one of the afore mentioned programs.

Changes Related to COVID-19: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued temporary emergency guidance making it easier for qualifying households to access this benefit. The order waives recertification and reverification requirement for the Lifeline program for 60 days. This means  clients who have been approved in the past do not need to report income again in order to be re-approved for a phone, and clients who are currently receiving services are not at risk of having their service disconnected due to failure to report their information. This order went into effect on March 17 and is in effect until Sunday June 5. Click here to fill out an online application.

To Add Minutes: The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) can add minutes to a Lifeline phone free of charge. DSHS has streamlined this process to make it easier than ever before. Clients no longer need to request a PIN code in the mail to add minutes. Lifeline customers can simply call 1-877-501-2233, request additional minutes to their phone and follow instructions to refill minutes automatically.

UPDATED 4/29/2020, NEW PUBLIC BENEFITS INFORMATION:             

Department of Social and Health Services has issued additional guidance around accessing food and cash assistance. Click here to read a summary of changes from Solid Ground and see below for more information.

At our April 16 General Membership Meeting, we heard a presentation from the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) and Solid Ground on temporary changes being made to increase access to food and cash assistance through the state. A copy of that presentation can be found here, along with a one page summary of changes here.

Thank you to the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) and Solid Ground for providing information on these changes. This information is current as of Tuesday April 21. Guidance may be further modified as the situation develops, so please check back here regularly as we will be updating this information.

Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

  • Program General Information: TANF is a monthly cash assistance program for families with children that can be accessed for a maximum of 60 months and requires that participants show proof that they have been looking for work or enrolled in school.
  • COVID Changes:
    • The work and school requirement has been suspended, and families that have reached their 60-month time limit can apply for an extension.
    • Any family that has a certification period for benefits ending in April or May will automatically have their benefits extended an additional six months, and mid-certification review requirements have been waived for the months of April and May as well. This change also applies to those receiving Age, Blind and Disabled (ABD) or Housing and Essential Needs (HEN) benefits.
    • The state still requires that TANF recipients follow the terms of their Individual Responsibility Plan (IRP), including attending any required legal or medical appointments. The terms of an IRP can be changed if a client can show sufficient proof of burden. If a client is concerned about meeting the terms of their IRP, they should request a modification by calling 1-877-501-2233 or by contacting their local Community Service Offices.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

  • Program General Information: SNAP provides a monthly award for food assistance. Individuals qualify by being low income and either caring for a minor child or having a recognized disability. Those who are low income without a recognized disability or caring for a minor child must show proof that they have been searching for work, school or volunteer opportunities as part of the ABAWD requirement (Able Bodied Adults Without Dependent Children)
  • COVID Changes:
    • The ABAWD requirement has been temporarily waived. Those who were previously denied benefits due to this are encouraged to re-apply.
    • Households enrolled in SNAP should also expect to see additional funds for the months of April and May as part of the federal stimulus package. Inform concerned clients that these additional funds are not an overpayment. 

 Low-Income Heating Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

  • Program General Information: LIHEAP is a program that provides a once per year grant to qualifying households to offset home heating costs. LIHEAP funding is flexible to accommodate almost any heating fuel source used by a home, and can be applied to rental costs in some circumstances.
  • COVID Changes:
    • Households who have previously qualified for LIHEAP may be awarded an additional $500 grant if they can prove they have been adversely affected by COVID-19. See this handout for more information.

 Disaster Cash Assistance Program (DCAP)

Proof of income is required to qualify for these programs.

  • People can submit proof of income through an attached PDF when applying online at the Washington Connection portal. Although service hours have been reduced, Community Service Offices still have some limited in-person services available. If the easiest way to submit income verification is in-person, you can drop materials off at CSO drop box location.

2019 December 10 Public Benefits 101 Workshop

The Coalition hosted a Public Benefits 101 Workshop on Tuesday, December 10 as part of our on-going series of Case Manager Trainings. Over 90 direct service providers joined us for a three-hour training covering the basics of public assistance programs offered by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). Thank you to presenters Sara Robbins and Katie Scott from the Solid Ground Legal Benefits Assistance Program who led the training and shared their knowledge and passion with the room. A brief summary of the programs covered below.

Click here for slides from 12/10/2019 Presentation

The workshop began with an overview of cash programs administered by the state. The Aged, Blind and Disabled program (ABD) and Housing and Essential Needs Program (HEN) are the primary cash benefits available for single adults without children. Formerly called Disability Lifeline, ABD provides $197/month to adults with a disability who do not receive significant income from work or another public benefit program. HEN has similar eligibility requirements but does not result in a direct cash payment. Details differ by region, but the primary benefits consist of a rental payment voucher and case management services. Visit Washington Connection to see if you or your client may be eligible to apply for cash assistance.

For families, the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program (TANF) is the primary cash assistance program available. TANF has a work requirement called WorkFirst that mandates TANF recipients be looking for work or be enrolled in some sort of job training program. Clients are required to sign off on an Individual Responsible Plan (IRP), failure to meet this requirement can result in a reduced or terminated award. The presenters stressed to the room that case managers should request copies of their clients IRPs and review them closely, noting they have found success in reinstating benefits when they can point to unreasonable or inconsistent items in the plans. Katie also shared that WorkFirst can provide additional financial resources to those on TANF looking for employment help, but that this can be difficult to access. There is a support services directory that outlines what this entails, she encouraged the room to tell clients to print out a copy to bring with them when requesting assistance.

The most widely used DSHS program is EBT food benefits, as confirmed by the 67 attendees who completed our pre-workshop survey. This benefit scales based on income; an average food stamp award offers around $125/month. Check out this benefit calculator to see how much you or your client may be able to claim in food benefits. The presenters stressed that there is no minimum age requirement for food assistance, meaning that minor children not living with their parents can apply and receive benefits. Presenters encouraged case managers working with youth denied food assistance to refer cases to their program.

Working Connections Childcare program (WCCC) provides a subsidy for daycare that is paid directly to the provider. Families qualify either through enrollment in Workfirst or based on income, and homeless families who qualify for neither can still receive services through a homeless grace period. The grace period currently lasts four months, partial months count towards the total and childcare providers are hesitant to accept payment due to these restrictions.

Fortunately, there is help for families in need of assistance. We were joined by Alexandria Barbaria and Norma Renteria Lobo from Child Care Resources who shared information on their program that helps families navigate the childcare system. Childcare Resources helps families experiencing homelessness in King and Pierce county apply for WCCC and can assist in finding childcare providers. They have also been active in advocacy efforts around expanding the homeless grace period, an effort they plan to take into the 2020 legislative session starting in January.

DSHS offers an appeal process to those who have had any of the above benefits reduced or terminated. If you or someone you work with has an issue with their benefits and wants to understand their legal options, reach out to the following for more information.

Solid Ground Public Benefits Legal Assistance Program provides legal help and information to single adults and families whose public benefits have been reduced, terminated or denied.  Call 206-694-6792 or email benefitslegalhelp@solid-ground.org

2019 October 17 General Membership Meeting Summary and Bring Seattle Home for Good

The Coalition hosted another lively and informative General Membership Meeting on Thursday, October 17th at Southside Commons in Columbia City. The energy in the room was palpable as over 50 direct service providers and community advocates came together to help us shape the future of our organization, and to provide insight in the ongoing work we are all engaged in. At our meeting Coalition members provided input on a discussion of the Coalition’s Mission statement, as well as our Vision and Values that are currently being developed. The thoughtful responses and pointed questions were an important reminder of the collective knowledge our members bring to this work – Thank You. Participants also provided valuable input to the Corporation for Supportive Housing to aid their efforts in developing and refining the details of our Regional Action Plan.

Take Action Now: Ask Seattle City Councilmembers to support the Home for Good. The Home for Good program was developed with members and partners of the Coalition, and the proposal is being sponsored by Councilmembers Lorena González and Lisa Herbold. Home for Good will provide a shallow rent subsidy to help people with disabilities who are transitioning from state assistance (primarily through Housing and Essential Needs (HEN) and Aged, Blind, and Disabled (ABD) to federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to prevent people from falling back into homelessness. Read David Kroman’s most recent Crosscut article about the proposal and use this link to Take Action Now and ask councilmembers to include this important program in the City’s budget. We see this as a real opportunity and need YOUR support to get as many supportive messages to councilmembers as possible.

At our meeting we were joined by Julissa Sanchez, South King County organizer with The Tenants Union of Washington who shared the recent Just Cause victory out of Burien. The City of Burien passed historic Just Cause legislation on Monday, October 7th thanks to tireless organizing work from the Tenants Union and renter advocacy organizations. Hear in Julissa’s words how this fight was won, and check out this handout for more information on how to bring the fight for Just Cause to your community.

Check out some other resources we discussed at our meeting, along with an update on our Voter Registration and Education work ahead of the November 5th General Election.

  • Kelsey Mesher with the Transportation Choices Coalition gave us a brief explainer on why the Coalition believes voting No on I-976 is so important to the communities we serve. Slashing billions of dollars meant for needed transportation improvements does not serve our community well, check out the campaign on Facebook for more information
  • Thank you to Debbie Thiele from the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) who led us in a follow up conversation on the continued formation of the Regional Action Plan (RAP). If you have other thoughts to share with Debbie, please email her at debbie.thiele@csh.org (feel free to cc’ Alison@homelessinfo.org so we can track what people are sharing as well).
  • The Coalition shared an alert from King County Public Health regarding a recent spike in fentanyl laced street drugs, both in powder and pressed pill form.
