Join Jobs for Life and Georgia Center for Opportunity for an exploration of GCO’s Benefit Cliffs Calculator. You’ll leave this webinar armed with helpful information, tools, and strategies so you can confidently create tailored plans that genuinely help your clients succeed. You will also leave better prepared to advocate for reforming a system that is trapping too many of the people you serve in poverty.
