Dismantling the Benefits Cliff-Free Informational Event at Goodwill

February 19 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Goodwill BAC Meeting
Wednesday, February 19, 8:00-10:00 a.m.
Goodwill Industries, 2701 University Parkway, Winston-Salem

You’re Invited!

Please join us for the next Forsyth County Business Advisory Council (BAC) Meeting on Wednesday, February 19 at 8:00 a.m. We are meeting at Goodwill’s headquarters, 2701 University Parkway in Winston-Salem. This month’s meeting will feature a special training on Dismantling the Benefits Cliff.
A benefits cliff is what happens when public benefit programs taper off or phase out quickly when household earnings increase. The abrupt reduction or loss of benefits can be very disruptive for families because even though household earnings increased, they usually have not increased enough for self-sufficiency.

Goodwill is partnering with the Asset Building Coalition of Forsyth County and other community organizations to offer this opportunity to learn how the benefits cliff negatively impacts our community and how we can work together to build a pathway to shared prosperity.

This event is free and open to BAC members, HR professionals, Goodwill employees, and other community agencies; however, it is invitation-only and space is limited so please register using the link below.

Join us for networking and a light breakfast at 8:00 a.m. The program will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. We look forward to seeing you on February 19.
