Helping Tenants Access their Economic Impact Payment

Join the Office of Public and Indian Housing along with guest speakers from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and United Way as they provide an overview of the Economic Impact Payment (EIP or stimulus payment) and provide suggestions on how Public Housing Authority’s and Tribes or Tribally Designated Housing Entities can help families and individuals access their stimulus payment. Many families and individuals may be missing out on accessing their EIP either because they aren’t required to file taxes, may not know how to apply, or may be homeless.

Learn about the resources specifically to help tenants file by the deadline.
