Media April 12, 2022

“Through a new program called the Safety Net Innovation Lab, announced in a talk at the TED2022 conference today, the tech nonprofit Code for America will work with states to help them redesign these services so they’re easier for the public use. “Our goal is to really rethink or transform the delivery of safety net benefits,” says Alexis Fernández Garcia, senior director of safety net at Code for America. The nonprofit has worked with some states individually in the past, but now plans to partner with 15 states, with the goal of reaching 13 million people and unlocking $30 billion in benefits. The Audacious Project is providing $64 million in funding, on top of a $36 million investment from Blue Meridian late last year.”
