What happens when we change the poverty line? Join us for a Facebook Live discussion during your lunch hour about what it could mean for disability programs and services. Closed captioning will be unavailable in real time though a full transcript of the conversation will be made available afterwards.
Hosted by Disability Rights Pennsylvania.
More about this topic from The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities -
"The Trump Administration is considering a change to the federal poverty line that would ultimately cause millions of people to lose eligibility for, or receive less help from, health, food assistance, and other programs that help them meet basic needs. (See Figure 1.) The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has requested comments on updating the Census Bureau's poverty thresholds using an alternative, lower measure of inflation than the traditional Consumer Price Index (CPI). That change would lower the poverty line by growing amounts each year relative to the current approach. The Administration could move forward with its proposal any time after OMB's June 21 deadline for comments."
